Kulgam: Numerous markets of Kulgam were submerged following incessant rains for the past few days. 
 The sudden rise in the water level resulted in submerging of Qaimoh and other markets.
The Vishow River that runs through the Kulgam District rose above the danger mark at several places in the district.
Flash floods also damaged the nomad tents in Pariwan, submerged the road to Laisoo and a temporary diversion in Chamgund.
Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner Kulgam Dr Bilal Mohi-Ud-Din-Bhat visited Qaimoh, Brazloo, Ashthal, Chamgund and several other places in the district and took a first-hand review of the situation arising due to heavy rains. 
 Speaking to reporters, DC said, “the district administration has stalled many officials at different spots to assist the people in need during the current heavy rains and people are requested to shift from low-lying areas to safer places and not to roam around VishowNallah.” 
Our relief teams will also reach out to shifted people and help them accordingly, he added.
