Rains bring down mercury in Kashmir
Srinagar, Jul 25: Heavy rainfall in most parts of Kashmir on Thursday brought respite to the valley residents from two weeks of hot and humid weather, even as the downpour affected normal life in Srinagar leading to water-logging in many city roads.
The rain which started as a drizzle around 7.45 am turned into a heavy downpour as the day progressed, leading to water-logging in many areas of the city, including the commercial hub of Lal Chowk and adjoining areas.
Water-logging was also reported from posh Rajbagh and Jawahar Nagar areas of the city as well as low-lying areas such as Bemina, Mehjoor Nagar, Baba Demb and Khanyar areas.
Heavy rainfall was also reported from other parts of the Valley.
The Meteorological Department here has forecast more rainfall over the next 24 hours.
