The government declared Murree a disaster area and declared a state of emergency, while rescue workers are carrying out relief work.
Relief work has intensified in Murree, Kohsar after the snowfall stopped. All major highways of Murree have been cleared for traffic.
In this regard, the police spokesman said that 600 to 700 vehicles were evacuated from Murree last night.
Heavy snowfall in Murree caused 20 to 25 large trees to fall, and all tourists were evacuated before nightfall.
More than 500 families have been evacuated in the last 24 hours.
Police are present on the routes coming from Rawalpindi to Murree. The routes will remain closed even today.
