Heavy Snowfall in Chitral
Heavy snofall for the last more than a week has almost disrupted infrastructure creating unbearable communication, transportation and power shortage in the entire region of the Chitral district. Roads branching off to different valleys from Chitral town are hazard-prone and in some places snow avalanches has just blocked the the approach road. Transporters are less likely to run the risk to move in the face of heavy stones lingering high above on the precipitous slop through which they have to drive. In the meanstime electricity shotdown has caused enormous problems both at household level and in the offices. Normal transaction of the day to day activities has alsmost come to a halt.
Patients, students and business communities have long stranded due to the cancelation of PIA flights linking the isolated district to the rest of the country.
