Today is the 13th day of the Chamoli accident rescue. So far the bodies of 62 people and 28 human organs have been removed from the debris. 142 people are still missing. This disaster was so terrible that debris is visible in many parts of Chamoli till now. This debris has also become like rock. By digging this out, the NDRF, SDRF and Uttarakhand Police are carrying out the rescue operation.
Dog squad team gathered on the spot
NDRF and SDRF teams are using dog squads, binoculars, rafts and other equipment to find people trapped under the debris. Officials said that a large number of people are still expected in Tapovan Tunnel. Rescue is facing problems due to mud and marsh. Rescue operations are being handled by people so that their bodies are not spoiled.
Continuous monitoring of the water level of the rivers
Meanwhile, the SDRF has installed a water sensor in the Rishiganga river near Raini village. This alarm will start ringing before the water level in the river rises. People will be able to hear its alarm for a distance of one kilometer and reach safe places in time.
On February 6, many people went missing after the glacier broke.
In the Tapovan area of Chamoli, the glacier collapsed and fell in the Rishiganga at around 10:30 am on Sunday, 6 February. This led to flooding in the surrounding areas. This river meets the Dhauliganga by going to Raini village, hence the water level in it also increased. Due to this, houses settled on the banks of both rivers were washed away. Apart from this, the bridge built by two power projects and the Border Road Organization was also destroyed. 206 people were reported missing in this disaster. Since then, continuous rescue operations have continued.
