On the 7th of February, a glacier in the Nandadevi range burst, leading to floods & landslides in the valley areas of Tapovan, Chamoli, Rudraprayag and Srinagar areas of Uttarakhand. Many villages were evacuated as floods demolished five bridges, damaged homes and the nearby NTPC (National Thermal Power Corporation) power plant, and washed away a small hydropower project near Rishiganga.
The confirmed death toll has increased to 70 while 135 persons still remain untraced. According to the Joshimath police have registered 205 missing persons reports. With countless people still trapped underneath the wreckage, National and state disaster response teams have been deployed, as have teams from the ITBP.
