Srinagar: The Srinagar-Jammu Highway was closed on Thursday due to landslides and shooting stones as fresh snowfall was witnessed in Srinagar and across the Valley, prompting authorities to close schools till Sunday.
Residents of Srinagar woke up to snowfall in the month of April after more than a decade.
The MeT Department officials in Srinagar said moderate to heavy snowfall was reported from higher reaches of Kashmir Valley.
Jammu and Kashmir has been witnessing intermittent rains in the past two days and residents have raised alarm over floods. Authorities, however, said the Jhelum river was flowing below danger level although the field staff have been asked to remain vigilant.
