Red Cross trucks for donating cold relief supplies, blankets, medicines and various other relief materials for the people of Jammu, Srinagar, Ladakh and Uttarakhand have been flagged off by Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on Friday.

Mandaviya said that the trucks will provide support vulnerable populations in the northern-most Union Territories for the winter season and provide flood relief to people of Uttarakhand.

In various parts of J&K and Ladakh minimum temperatures have dropped due to rain and snowfall.

Heavy rains in the recent past have left many people dead in Uttarakhand. Due to flash floods and landslides caused by heavy rains in Uttarakhand many shops were also damaged. Over 300 people were rescued by the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) from the flood-affected areas of the state.
