Pakistan – 174 people missing and 200 trapped by unexpected early heavy snowfall and blizzards

Massive snowfall over the last three days has blanketed the region, local officials said.
Around 200 people, including women and children, are trapped in the Charagah area of Deosai while 252 people were rescued Saturday night, Tariq Hussein a local administration official told reporters.
“Rescue teams are facing difficulties in carrying out operations due to a layer of three to four feet of snow in the affected area,” the official said. “The region faces an unseasonal amount of snowfall.”
The trapped and missing people are mostly shepherds and their families who move with their herds during the season.
The region usually receives seasonal snowfall after September 15, but this year, it unexpectedly struck two weeks before which environmentalists see as a result of climate change.
Ah yes, the obligatory nod to “climate change.”
