The Teesta River was flooded by a cloudburst in Sikkim, leaving 23 Army personnel missing. Soldiers who have gone missing have been the focus of a massive search, the Army has announced.

Several establishments along Lachen valley have been affected, according to the Army’s Eastern Command. “The release of water from the Chungthang dam caused a sudden increase in water levels up to 15-20 feet. This has led to Army vehicles parked at Bardang near Singtam getting affected. 23 personnel have been reported missing and some vehicles are reported submerged in the slush. Search operations are underway,” the statement said.

Over the course of the night, Sikkim has received heavy rains. In north Sikkim, a cloudburst caused Lhonak Lake to overflow and increased the Teesta River’s water levels. Sikkim and West Bengal are the last places the Teesta River flows before reaching Bangladesh.

A high alert has been issued by the Sikkim administration to residents. Roads werehed away and rivers flooded in videos filmed by locals and shared on social media.

In a visit to an affected area, Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang said there have been no injuries, but there has been significant damage to public property. Some people have also been reported missing. Relief operations are underway.

Teesta is swollen after the lake in Sikkim’s Chungthang overflowed, according to the India Meteorological Department. The weather office warned that Gazoldoba, Domohani, Mekhaliganj, and Ghish may be affected.
