Heavy rains cripple life in Jammu
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, July 24: Heavy rains since Sunday morning crippled the normal life here.
However, early morning rain also brought cheer to Jammuites but disrupted traffic especially in the waterlogged parts of the city.
The rains, which revived Friday after a lull of nearly two days, lashed Jammu, its suburbs and the adjoining districts of Ramban and part of Doda.
The heavy monsoon, this season, has already led to dip in the temperature, which on Saturday was recorded above 32 degrees but one notches below the temperature recorded in Srinagar, the summer capital of the state. However, around 100 per cent humidity level being recorded from the past few days is the major cause of worry for the people of this region.
Reports reaching here revealed that the heavy rains also lashed all along the Srinagar- Jammu highway from Jammu to Banihal. Though the rains slowed the traffic in the morning, the highway was open for the vehicular movement, a senior traffic official claimed.
Water logging was reported from various parts of the city including, Jewal, Dogra Chowk, Narwal Raod, Kanak Mandi, Lakhdata Bazar and Purani Mandi.
