Rescue teams race to find survivors at Tapovan tunnel in Chamoli.

Using drones and remote-sensing equipment, rescue teams intensified efforts on February 10 to reach an estimated 25-35 men trapped in the sludge-choked Tapovan tunnel since the Uttarakhand glacier disaster three days ago and the over 200 people still missing. So far, 32 bodies have been recovered from different places in the disaster-hit areas of Chamoli district according to the State Emergency Control Centre in Dehradun. A glacier broke in the Tapovan-Reni area of Chamoli District of Uttarakhand on February 7, which led to massive flooding in Dhauliganga and Alaknanda rivers, and damaged houses and the nearby Rishiganga power project.
