3 dead, 15 injured in Kashmir Valley windstorm

Three people have died and 15 others have been injured in the windstorm that has lashed the Kashmir Valley since Friday evening.

Srinagar, May 19 : Three people have died and 15 others have been injured in the windstorm that has lashed the Kashmir Valley since Friday evening.

More than 33 houses and some houseboats have been partially damaged. The toll and the extent of the damage are expected to increase as reports from far-flung areas are still awaited.

Strong winds accompanied by heavy rains wreaked havoc in the Kashmir valley on Friday.

Trees lay uprooted, blocking roads and electricity poles and signboards were toppled over in the storm backed by winds of 80 kilometres per hour (kmph).

Several houseboats also turned upside down in the Dal Lake. However, there were no reports of any casualty due to the houseboats overturning.

The city was plunged in darkness and traffic in several areas came to a grinding halt taking people off-guard.
