Kuldeep Ranka, secretary, relief informed dna that the home department of Uttrakhand has been updating the list of people rescued on its website www.uttrakhandpolice.uk.gov.in and people can look on the website for verifying the names of their kin stuck in the hill state.
Though there is no official figure of death or missing people from the state, the government decided late evening to send 2 helicopters to help in the rescue operations.—dna
