Heavy snow-fall cripples life in Valley

Normal life in Kashmir valley has been crippled by snowfall as most of the people preferred to remain indoors. Fresh snowfall resulted in slight increase in minimum temperature and brought much needed respite to the residents of the Valley. Snowfall also blocked Srinagar-Jammu highway which is the vital road link connecting it with the other parts of the country. Air-traffic has also being affected and most of the flights remained cancelled due to inches of snow over runway. Only skateboards could be seen as a mean of traffic to travel due to slippery conditions. Most of the shops and other business establishments have been closed. Snowfall affected the business of houseboat owners as well. Daljit Singh, a local said that snowfall created problems for them but it also increased tourism as well as enough water for the summers would also be collected. The snowfall began on Saturday (January 14) night and continued in most parts of the Valley for the second successive day. Fresh snowfall ranging between two to eight inches was also measured in other parts of the Valley including Shopian, Pahalgam, Baramullah and Kulgam. Meteorological Department announced to have relief from snowfall from Monday evening.
