Aadi Gutno village of Kulgam District was washed away by September 2014 Kashmir floods. The lack of a concrete protection bund(wall) on the river Vaishoo till date has kept this village vulnerable.
Crops, agricultural land, and houses were destroyed the last time River Vaisho breached into the village, putting the whole population into grave danger.
