Srinagar: Strong winds and heavy rainfall hit Srinagar Tuesday evening bringing life literally to a standstill for a few minutes.

The windstorm kept blowing for more than ten minutes amid a heavy rainfall.  The heavy winds created panic and scare while the Power supply in many areas was snapped.

Although no loss of life or property was reported immediately, the tourists visiting the Dal Lake were assisted by the Shikarawallas, who guided them to the shelter.
