Silt from the 2010 storm at Shey

The storm, reported in our press as flash floods at Leh with limited damage, actually covered a large area, caused many fatalities and did a lot of damage.
In the flood plain of the Indus valley fields had been buried and irrigation channels clogged by silt, here apparently a deposit about three feet thick.
