 Hussaini, May 19: With gradual increase in temperature water level has increased in streams and torrents in lower regions of Gojal valley. There are also reports about glacial lake outburst floods in Hussaini and Passu villages. The amount of water released during these floods, however, is lesser than last year.

GLOF at the KKH, between Ghulkin and Hussaini, had damaged the road, resulting in closure for a few hours. However, the Chinese engineers working at the site paved the road. Similarly, in Passu village a small scale GLOF has increased the level of water but no damaged to property and life has been reported.

Last year glacial lake outbursts at Passu, Hussaini and Ghulkin had caused high scale damage to property.
