INDIAN KHASMIR'S SRINAGAR HITS BY DEADLY FLOODS

Deadly floods hit Indian Kashmir’s main city of Srinagar on Sunday, forcing scores of residents to flee as Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in the region to see the devastation first-hand. 
Almost 250 people have been killed in the northern Himalayan region and in neighbouring Pakistan since torrential monsoon rains triggered flooding, landslides and house collapses in recent days. 
Troops and other emergency personnel have been deployed in both countries to help with relief operations, with boats and helicopters used to reach those stranded. 
The Jhelum river, swollen by days of heavy rain, flooded parts of Srinagar on Sunday and forced frantic residents to move to rooftops, with reports the first floors of several hospitals were underwater and cellular phone networks disrupted. 
“I want to appeal to people not to panic,” Kashmir and Jammu state chief minister Omar Abdullah told reporters. 
“I know the situation is bad but they should stay above the water level… it may take up to an hour but we will reach them and take them out,” he said. "We are taking all the measures to ensure that we can reach the maximum number of people."
