Early monsoons and subsequent cloud burst on June 14 this year in Uttarakhand (a northern state in India) have brought widespread destruction of human lives, infrastructure, property and livelihood, specially in the districts of Rudraprayag, Uttarkashi, Chamoli, Pauri and Tehri. The situtation has worsened due to the frequent landslides.
According to latest reports at least 1100 people are feared dead and 11000 missing. The IGSSS Emergency Response Team visited Agastmuni Block of Rudraprayag District and highlighted insufficient relief and health services as major concerns in the area. Connectivity is one of the major challenges in providing relief. Basis on ER Team’s assessment IGSSS has identified three tehsils – Rudraprayag, Ukhimath and Jagoli in Agastmuni to be the intervention areas. The immediate relief will be provided to over 2000 households.
