More rain in northern India causes flooding and highway closure

Torrential rains across northern India have caused flooding, mudslides and highway closures. The badly swollen Jhelum River has forced evacuations, and the vital Srinagar-Jammu National Highway has been closed. Several people are missing. Emergency authorities are on alert in the Jammu and Kashmir area administered by India.

Travellers to northern India should check with local authorities and emergency reports before visiting the affected areas.
