High winds damage houses, down trees in Pulwama
High winds on Thursday evening damaged rooftops of at least seventy houses besides trees and transmission lines in Pulwama district of south Kashmir.
Electricity was snapped to hospitals and several areas like Pulwama town, Rajpora and several other localities after transmission lines from Pampore and Lassipora grids were damaged.
Several roads were blocked after high winds downed dozens of Chinar trees.
The Deputy Commissioner Pulwama Muneer-ul-Islam on Friday visited the affected areas.
He said that all blocked roads were restored for traffic.
"Electricity will be restored until evening," he added.
