A graphic video from Himachal's Dharamshala was flashing our screens this Monday morning, as the popular tourist spot of Bhagsunag got hit by flash floods due to heavy rains.
The media reported early on Monday, through a video shared by SHO, Mcleodganj, Vipin Chaudhary where violent, muddy stream of water is seen flooding the streets, and flowing over vehicles destructing whatever comes in its way.

The town was recently in news for tourists walking around without a face mask, violating Covid-19 protocols. A video featuring a young kid policing everyone to wear a mask surfaced, post which the kid was made a mascot by the local police.
According to the weather forecast, light to moderate rain and thundershowers are expected to occur in isolated places in the districts of Shimla, Solan, Sirmaur, Kinnaur, Kangra, Una, Chamba, Bilaspur, Hamirpur, Mandi and Kullu.
