Joshimath’s land subsidence: According to the District Disaster Management Department, Joshimath’s ongoing land subsidence has led to cracks appearing in as many as 561 homes.
66 families have reportedly left Joshimath as of right now as a result of the appearance of cracks in the dwellings. “Now that fissures in Singhdhar and Marwadi are beginning to grow, this process has begun. Cracking is ongoing on Badrinath NH next to the Singhdhar Jain neighbourhood and at JP Company Gate in Marwadi, close to the checkpoint for the forest department. Worryingly, this crack is growing larger by the hour “said Shailendra Pawar, chairman of the Joshimath Municipal Council.
According to Joshimath, the chairman of the City Board, as many as nine residences in Marwadi have reported cracks, and at the same time, cracks have begun to emerge in most of the ward’s public roads. In JP Colony, Marwadi ward of Joshimath, the District Disaster Management Department has also documented instances of water seepage from underground.
People are having a lot of trouble walking because of the growing number of cracks on all the main roads in Sunil Ward, according to Shalendar Panwar.
