Incessant rain triggers landslides, blocks Jammu-Srinagar National Highway

SRINAGAR — Persistent rainfall has led to multiple landslides along the strategic Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, causing a complete blockade, officials confirmed on Saturday.

The landslides, occurring between the Banihal and Ramban sectors, have severely disrupted traffic flow along the vital transportation artery.

Compounding the situation, heavy rainfall persists along the entire length of the highway, heightening the dangers of travel in the region.

In response to the crisis, authorities have issued advisories advising the public to refrain from using NH-44 until weather conditions improve and the road is cleared of debris, emphasizing safety as a top priority amidst the ongoing inclement weather.
