HUNZA (Agencies) High alert was declared in Hunza and the entrance into the vacated villages of the area was prohibited by the authorities on Sunday in view of imminent threat of flood there due to bursting of landslide-triggered lake. The situation was all the more dangerous as the gap between the spillway and the water level in the lake had narrowed to six feet. The inflow at the lake was 2,600 cusecs and outflow was 200 cusecs as the lake have spread over 26-kilometre area, a private news channel reported. The administration had set May 25 (Tuesday) as deadline for overflowing of water from the lake. According to the Deputy Commissioner of Hunza, entry into the 32 vacated villages in Hunza Nagar and Gilgit at night was already banned. Now it would be enforced at daytime as well, he added. He further said: We have warned the people and a clear-cut advisory has been issued to them. If someone goes to the areas, he would be himself responsible for the losses. Meanwhile, responding to an urgent request made by Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) and the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has started transporting critical relief supplies for the affected people of Hunza. A Press release issued in Islamabad on Sunday said that a convoy of 16 trucks loaded with some 12,500 blankets, 1,500 kerosene stoves, 5,000 plastic sheets, 2,500 hygiene kits, 2,500 kitchen sets, 2,570 jerry cans, 2,500 plastic buckets and 195 water coolers left from Aza Khel, Nowshera near Peshawar and was seen off by officials of PRCS, NDMA and WFP. We are closely monitoring the flooding situation in Hunza, and remain ready to immediately respond to requests for strengthening the national efforts to reduce the suffering of the affected people, Belkacem Benzaza, WFP Head of Logistics in Pakistan said. Twenty people were killed in the landslide and subsequent flooding of several villages upstream displaced about 6,000 people and left another 25,000 stranded, according to officials and locals residents. Officials evacuated thousands of people this week amid fears the lake, formed after a landslide blocked the Hunza River on Jan 4, could burst and affect about 50,000 people downstream. In addition to transporting relief goods, WFP is supporting NDMA and Gilgit-Baltistan Disaster Management Authority (GB-DMA) relief and recovery efforts on going in Hunza and has dispatched four generators for sustained power supply to the medical storage centres and other critical facilities in the affected area.
