Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Jan. 20 (ANI): In what can be called as a slight of relief to the residents and tourists in the Valley, the roads are being cleared after the state witnessed heavy snowfall. One-way traffic resumed on the 300-km-long Jammu-Srinagar national highway after remaining suspended for three days due to heavy snowfall and landslides. However, traffic jams still remained a consistent problem due to recurring snowfall. The people are also facing the problem of power disruption. Jammu and Kashmir's summer capital, Srinagar witnessed 3.3 degrees Celsius. As cold wave continued to sweep north India, Leh recorded a chilling minus 8.3 degrees Celsius. Punjab and Haryana too continued to reel under intense cold wave conditions. Dense fog and mist at several places disrupted road, rail and air traffic in the region.
