    • Many villages in the interior of the hilly state remain cut off due to landslides and getting food, Kedarnath Valley – one of the worst affected areas – is only accessible by helicopters. Bad weather could also disrupt the restoration of infrastructure and cause roads that have been cleared to become choked again. EFFECTS
    • Although the temple withstood the severity of the floods, the temple complex and surrounding areas were destroyed by the flood, resulting in the death of several thousands of pilgrims and local people. All the shops and hotels were destroyed and all roads were broken. Number of people took shelter inside the temple for hours together , until Indian army airlifted them to safer places.

    • At present the area is only accessible by air and establishing the narrow roads and the foot bridges will be crucial.
