Massive devastation at Kedarnath, hundreds missing.
Natures massacre or the act of GOD.
The ‘Jyotirlinga’ in Rudraprayag district is among the most revered Hindu pilgrimage sites and is visited by lakhs of people every year during the Char Dham Yatra – which has been suspended after the rain fury that has damaged roads and building and left over 100 dead in the state.
As per reports, 50 bodies are lying in areas adjacent to the shrine even as it is feared that many more bodies are below the debris. Aerial pictures of the area show massive devastation with several hotels and shops damaged in the floods.
About 500 people, including several pilgrims, are said to be missing in the area. However, some other reports claimed that over 6000 people are stranded in the Kedarnath valley.
Search and rescue operations started late due to adverse climatic conditions. Multiple teams of national disaster management force, Army and para-military forces are working on a war footing to provide aid and help.
While 27,040 tourists are stranded in Chamoli, Rudraprayag and Uttarkashi have 25,000 and 9,850 pilgrims from various parts of the country stranded, Disaster Management authorities said.
Disaster in Uttarakhand: Floods kill over 150; Kedarnath temple stands amid ruins
The devastating flash floods in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh have left a tale of devastation behind with damaged properties and dead bodies. The northern parts of Uttarakhand have been particularly ravaged by the floods. More than 62,000 pilgrims and tourists are still stranded in the calamity-hit state. While 11,000 have been rescued, over 150 people have been reported dead.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, who have reached Dehradun, undertook an aerial survey of the extensive damage. According to reports, the PM has announced a relief of 1000 crore rupees for the state of Uttarakhand. The Uttar Pradesh government, too, has announced a financial help of 25 crore rupees.
The Kedarnath shrine and the surrounding valley were severely damaged and submerged in mud and slush after unprecedented flash floods hit the area and other parts of Uttarakhand.
The shrine, situated at an altitude of 3593 metres (11760 feet) in Rudraprayag district, is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas and among the most revered Hindu pilgrimage sites visited by lakhs of devotees every year during the Char Dham Yatra undergoing at the time when the floods hit.
Zee News reports that the yatra has been suspended following the catastrophe.
Around 50 bodies are reportedly lying in areas adjacent to the shrine even as it is feared that many more bodies are below the debris. About 500 people, including several pilgrims, are said to be missing in the area. The death toll may rise significantly once water recedes and relief teams are able to access the affected areas.
The major cause of devastation of Kedarnath town is said to be the breaking of the Kedar Dome, a glacier-like body that led to a rupture in the Charbari lake reservoir, reported Zee News.
