Srinagar, As rainfall subsides across Kashmir, officials stated there is no flood threat in the region. They are monitoring water levels closely, noting a rise in the Jhelum River near Ram Munshi Bagh while levels in the southern part of Kashmir are decreasing.

According to Kashmir Media Service, an official from the BJP-installed IIOJK administration’s Irrigation and Flood Control department said they expect the water level in the Jhelum River to start receding in Srinagar in the coming hours.
