Uttarakhand Glacier Burst LIVE: 15 killed, over 170 still missing; multi-agency rescue operations underway

At least 14 people lost their lives and 170 are still missing after a glacier break at Joshimath in Uttarakhand's Chamoli district triggered massive flooding of the Alaknanda and Dhauliganga rivers on Sunday, news agency ANI reported. Many villages were evacuated as floods swept away five bridges, damaged homes and the nearby NTPC power plant, and washed away a small hydro power project near Rishiganga. National and state disaster response teams along with teams from the ITBP are engaged in the rescue operations. The Army has sent six columns and the Navy seven diving teams.
