2013 UTTARAKHAND FLOODS
Between June 13 and 17, 2013, the state of Uttarakhand received an unusual amount of rainfall. This led to the melting of the Chorabari glacier and the eruption of the Mandakini river. The floods affected large parts of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Western Nepal.
The heavy rainfall caused massive flash floods and landslides, resulting in the death of residents and tourists, as well as extensive damage to property.
The flood left behind a death toll of more than 5,000 while thousands went missing.
