On Wednesday, most parts of Rajouri and Poonch districts received heavy downpour. This not only brought much needed respite from dry cold but also resulted in slight increase in water bodies’ level.

People and health experts said that heavy rainfall was much needed to bring an end to the dry cold season and this finally happened.
