Snowfall has resumed in Baltistan, including Skardu, after a break of two days.

Heavy snow has severed Skardu's links with rest of the country. Flights between Islamabad and Skardu remained suspended on the sixth consecutive day today.

Arandu was the worst-hit area of Baltistan, which has received seven feet snow so far. A house was collapsed and a number of cattle-heads were killed in avalanches in the area. Rescue teams also could not reach Arandu because of closure of the road and hanging bridge leading to the area.
