A cloudburst in Himachal Pradesh's Kullu led to heavy rainfall today, with communication being lost in many tourist towns in the valley. 

Malana village and Manikaran in the Kullu district are cut off from the rest of the state. Rescue efforts are underway.

Around 25-30 employees working at the Malana 2 hydel power plant were evacuated. All water sources in Manikaran valley are currently witnessing very high water discharge.

The authorities at Larji, Pandoh, and Bilaspur are on high alert. There is a fear of lives lost in the cloudburst.
