A glacier has burst near Uttarakhand's Joshimath on India-China border, ANI reported quoting Colonel Manish Kapil, Commander, Border Road Task Force. There is no report of any damage or loss of lives so far.
In February, a glacier broke off at Joshimath in Uttarakhand's Chamoli district, leading to a massive flood in the Dhauli Ganga river and causing large-scale devastation in the upper reaches of the ecologically fragile Himalayas.
Homes along the way were swept away as the waters rushed down the mountainsides in a raging torrent.
Over 70 bodies were recovered and hundreds were declared missing as rescue and search operations continued for days.
Later, the Uttarakhand government issued a notification authorising officials to declare 'presumed dead' 136 people who went missing after the flash flood.
