Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on Monday tookstock of flood-like situation in the state and promised to provide compensation to non-insured people in flood affected areas.

"We'll try to provide compensation to non-insured people who have been affected by the flood. I sincerely hope that the situation will further improve from today," said Sayeed.

Earlier in the day, the state government has issued a flood warning following incessant rainfall resulting in rise in water level of Jhelum River.

People have moved to higher reaches after water entered few homes in low lying areas of Kashmir.

Heavy rainfall has also caused waterlogging in the state and power supply is down in most parts of Srinagar.

However, there has been a respite from rain from the past few hours.
