New Delhi: Over 1,300 people have been evacuated so far from Udham Singh Nagar and Nainital districts in Uttarakhand, the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) said on Wednesday. The NDRF also distributed relief materials in the flood-ravaged areas.

More than 50 people have died and several are still missing following heavy rains and subsequent flash floods and landslides in many parts of Uttarakhand.

NDRF officials said that 17 self-contained rescue teams working overtime in the rain-battered state in association with the state authorities.

“Out of these, six teams have been deployed in Udham Singh Nagar district while two each are placed in Uttarkashi and Chamoli and one team each has been deployed in Dehradun, Pithoragarh, Champawat and Haridwar. Besides, two full teams and one sub-team have been deployed in Nainital, while one sub-team has been placed in Almora,” an official was quoted as saying by news agency IANS.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited Dehradun on Wednesday to take stock of the relief and rescue work.
