Uttarakhand: Four soldiers and three civilians are reportedly missing after a cloudburst hit the Mangta Nala region of Uttarakhand on Monday.

According to ANI, three bodies have also been recovered in Malpa.

The vehicular movement on the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra route has been affected due to the floods and landslide caused by the cloudburst.

Two bridges were damaged in Mangti and one in Simkhola districts of Uttarakhand. 

The cloudburst has surged the water level in the river Kali which is now flowing above the danger level.
