Pong Dam will release 49,000 cusecs of water
More than 49,000 cusecs of water will be released from the Pong Dam in Himachal Pradesh's Kangra district on Tuesday afternoon as the water level in the dam is nearing the danger mark, an official said.
There is no need to panic, he said.
"However, the residents of low-lying areas in HP and neighboring Punjab should remain vigilant. The authorities have also been asked to make all kinds of preparations," he added.
