According to a Russian Sputnik news agency on February 7, the situation in the lower Arakhand River in India has returned to normal after the glacier rupture, Trivendra Singh Rawat, said.
Lavat tweeted: “The news is gratifyingly that the flow of the Araknanda River outside South Deprajeg has returned to normal. At present, the water level of the river is 1 meter higher than the normal value, but the flow rate is decreasing.
The Chief Secretary, the Emergency Secretary, the Police Officer and my entire team have been monitoring the situation unfolding without interruption in the dispatch room.” Lavat also called on people not to panic and spread unproven videos.
Earlier, according to NDTV in India, preliminary information showed that the glacier rupture in Uttarakhand, India, caused flooding, leaving more than 150 people missing. According to the report, most of the missing people are workers at the Rishiganga hydropower station.
Sources show that huge ice blocks follow the Alaknanda and Dhauliganga rivers in the Himalayas and cause flooding in the high mountains.
In order to prevent further damage, hydropower plants located downstream have begun to discharge emergency water.
