Dense fog hits life

Chandigarh, December 28
Amritsar in Punjab and Narnaul in Haryana were the coldest in the plains today, recording a similar minimum temperature of 4.8 C while an intense cold wave continued to make people shiver at many places in Himachal and parts of the Kashmir valley. The mercury dropped to minus 2.5 C in Srinagar, while Jammu recorded a low of 7.0 C, according to the Meteorological Department here.

Shimla, which recorded a minimum of 4.2 C, had a clear sky till late afternoon, but icy cold winds blowing in and around the town made people shiver. The neighbouring Solan also recorded a low of 1.0 C.

Fog reduced visibility in the morning at many places, including Jammu, Udhampur, Pathankot, Amritsar, Bathinda, Ambala and Sirsa. Chandigarh had a clear sky today. However, poor visibility in the morning caused by mist delayed the Chandigarh-Delhi-Mumbai Goa flight by 90 minutes, airline sources said.

PHAGWARA: A thick blanket of fog engulfed this region on the third day today, adversely affecting rail and road traffic.

Railway sources said the 3049 Up Howrah Express, bound for Amritsar, was running behind schedule by eight hours and 15 minutes. The Flying Mail was running behind schedule by two hours. The fog was so dense that railway employees had to burst crackers for giving clearing signals to trains from signal posts. UNI, OC
