  • Hi I am pasting a few lines

    Hi

    I am pasting a few lines that I have added yesterday on Orkut about Food Like situation that has just came up in Ladakh in this thick of winter. I thought someone may be interested in it.

    Flood In Winter!
    Hi Guys,

    There is some bad news.
    Low laying areas along the river are facing a fresh
    flood situation in Ladakh in the mid of Jan, something unheard of.
    Ice jams and freezing of shallow river beds are sending a substantial backwater flow flooding nearby areas.Authorities are trying to break the ice and make channels so that course of the river is not diverted, yet the danger remains.

    This has happened because a lot of debris including
    big boulders and silt have filled up the river during
    flood last Aug. This has made the river very shallow
    which is not good for easy flow of Zulsub
    (Icelings or ice pellets)which occurs during winter.
    The Zulsubs get trapped under the sheet of ice already
    formed on the shallow river and block the flow of water.
    The back water gets frozen up into thicker and thicker
    sheet of ice and breaches embankments and changes the
    course of the river.

    All low lying area such as from Chushot to Phey is threatened
    by this new development.

  • Where did you get rainfall

    Where did you get rainfall figure of 250mm per hour where as Air Force station maintains they record rainfall of 12.8mm on 5th Aug 2010. Please specifically quote the source of your rainfall. Secondly had cloud burst phenomenon really would have been the reason then Skampari and Housing colony would have also been affected but they were not at all affected Clould burst is actually no phenomenon which can on its own cause selective destruction the way it happened on 6th Aug 2010. I was in Choglamsar trapped in the mud slush on that eventful hours. Moreover the timings were around zero hours of 6th Aug 2010 and by 12:30 the major impact was almost over.
