Heavy damage in Manali in recent flash floods

 In the last few days, I have written many posts on the flash floods in Punjab and Himachal. These floods have done huge devastation in both states. In Himachal Pradesh around 100 people have died and many are missing. The water level in Baes River crossed previous records and caused damage to the roads, houses and hotels. The flow of water was so that many strong bridges were swept by the water. Two days back, I showed you the pictures of Panchvaktra Temple (Mandi) after the floods. Today, I am going to share with you some videos uploaded by the locals of Manali which showed the level of devastation in Manali. 

After watching these videos, we get to know about the horror of floods in Manali. For kilometres, roads have vanished by the water. In some places, the Baes River has changed its path and entered the markets. These floods have cut off the Manali region from all other parts of India. People of Manali are living without electricity and internet connectivity. It will take a long time to repair roads and other facilities because of the huge damage. These videos clearly show that it is very dangerous to live near the river and I hope that the Himachal government will put a ban on the new constructions in a river bed. These floods are wake-up calls and warnings to the people and government to not play with nature.
