The Indian Meteorological Department or IMD has forecast isolated, extreme heavy rainfall over Uttarakhand for today. The western Himalayan region (Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit, Baltistan and Muzaffarabad, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand) and adjoining northwest India (Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, UP and north Madhya Pradesh) are also likely to receive isolated heavy to very heavy rains during the period, it said.

Last week, a landslide, triggered by heavy rainfall, blocked the Rishikesh-Gangotri national highway which leads to the Sino-India border.

The highway was similarly blocked on May 29 after a landslide due to incessant rainfall.
