Heavy rains may lash isolated places in Uttarkashi, Chamoli, Rudraprayag, Nainital and Pithoragarh districts during the next 24 hours, the Meteorological department said.
In view of the alert, Chief Secretary S Ramaswamy asked the District Magistrates to be vigilant. A huge landslide triggered by rains a few days back had left thousands of pilgrims stranded on way to Badrinath which falls in Chamoli district.
Kedarnath is located in Rudraprayag whereas Yamunotri and Gangotri are situated in Uttarkashi district.
District emergency operation centres should be ready with machines like JCBs to deal with road blockades caused by landslips whereas the PWD should do rock stabilisation work in the hills, Mr Ramaswamy said.
