The beautiful land of Kashmir was devastated by the flood which, it is considered, as the worst flood that has ever hit the valley. More than 2600 villages were reported to be affected by floods and almost 390 villages in Kashmir were completely submerged. The preliminary assessment of damages to property was estimated between Rs.5000 cr to Rs.6000 cr. Major cities like Srinagar were severely damaged which resulted in the collapse of the local economy.
