In Mandi District an army camp was also washed away along with thirty mules belonging to army. However, no loss of life in army camp has been reported. On the contrary army is engaged in rescuing the marooned villagers. All efforts are being made to provide relief at a war footing. Air force has been deployed to drop food supply to the stranded villagers. The cause of flash floods is stated to be heavy rains or cloud burst in the Tibet region.

Two colonies of PWD workers engaged in the construction of Hydroelectric projects at Bhawa Nagar have also suffered heavy loss.
