As of Tuesday, the bodies of 70 people and 29 human organs have been found on the 17th day of the disaster.

The mouth of the lake above the Rishiganga is widened.
There is still great danger from the artificial lake formed by the glacier breaking over the Rishiganga River near Raini village in Chamoli. Due to the small mouth of the lake, the flow of water was slowing down. Due to this, the lake was in danger of breaking. ITBP personnel have widened the mouth of the lake by about 15 feet. Due to the accumulation of water here, pressure was building. Navneet Bhullar, Commandant of the State Disaster Response Team (SDRF), says that work is on to widen the mouth of the lake.
The teams of ITBP and SDRF have constantly monitored the lake.
The lake has about 480 million liters of water
The Indian Navy, Airforce and Expert team also inspected the artificial lake formed by the breaking of the glacier above the sage Ganga. Divers have measured the depth of the lake. This lake is estimated to have about 480 million liters of water.
According to experts, this lake is about 750 meters long and has narrowed further. Its depth is eight meters. Divers of the navy measured the depth of the lake with an echo sounder in hand. If this lake breaks, it can cause a lot of damage. According to experts, this lake is like the Chaurabadi of Kedarnath. In 2013, the disaster occurred due to the breaking of the lake 250 meters long, 150 meters wide and about 20 meters deep in the upper part of Kedarnath. About 17 thousand liters of water came out from this lake every second.
Also put sensor
A team of experts has been deployed to monitor the entire movement in this lake. Apart from this, sensors have also been installed in the Rishiganga River, which will raise the alarm as soon as the water level of the river rises. SDRF has also installed a device for communication here.
