Another video showing people running on the streets to take shelter during a cloud burst is being shared as clip from Kullu.
How did we find out the truth?: We performed reverse image search on some of the keyframes from both the videos which led us to old reports.
We came across a video report from Hindustan Times which carried the same video of a building collapsing on a hilly region.
The video was uploaded on 1 October 2021 and the description stated that a multi-storey building collapsed in Shimla's Kachi Ghatti area on 30 September 2021.
It also stated that the collapse was due to a landslide triggered by heavy rainfall.
We came across a video report published by Official iNews, a YouTube channel of an Indonesian news network, from 23 June 2016, that carried the viral video.
The title suggested that the visuals showed flash floods video in Sangihe, Sulawesi.
We also found the viral video in a report published on an Indonesian website Liputan6, from 23 June 2016.
According to the report, the video was from the Tahuna district of the Sangihe Regency in North Sulawesi, Indonesia which witnessed landslides and floods on 22 June 2016.
Recent destruction caused by heavy rainfall: Heavy rainfall was witnessed in several states in north India from 9 July, including Punjab, Chandigarh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Delhi-NCR as well as certain parts of Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh.
On 13 July, the death toll due to heavy rainfall reached 90 in Himachal Pradesh.
Amongst these, 39 deaths were reported over the first four days.
We also did a fact-check story about a viral video of a crocodile seen in Madhya Pradesh which was being passed off as a video from Haryana.
Conclusion: Old and unrelated visuals of cloud burst and collapsing buildings are going viral to claim that they show the condition of Himachal Pradesh after the recent bout of rains.
