UP woman and her two sons die in Budgam cloudburst

A woman from Uttar Pradesh and her two sons died on Monday in a cloudburst in Budgam district of Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.

The woman and her two sons — believed to be adults — were working as laborers in a brick kiln at Chandhara in Budgam when the cloudburst occurred, the officials said.

They said the trio died on the spot.

Initial reports suggest that the deceased were from Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh.

Meanwhile, high-speed winds swept through many parts of Kashmir, uprooting trees and blowing away roofs of residential houses in many areas.

Police officials said at least three dozen structures across the valley have suffered damage due to winds but there were no reports of any casualties, other than the victims of the cloudburst.
