Doda, which falls in the Jammu region, has witnessed heavy rainfall this monsoon.
Last week, three members of a family in the district were killed after their house collapsed following heavy rains. Authorities said the roof of their mud house collapsed due to heavy rains in Tanta village. Earlier this week, landslides due to heavy rains in Jammu and Kashmir’s Ramban district had forced the authorities to temporarily suspend traffic on the arterial Jammu-Srinagar national highway that connects Jammu and the Kashmir valley.
Heavy rainfall has led to flash floods and landslides in many parts of the country including Assam, Manipur and Odisha.
