An elderly woman and her granddaughter died on the spot when debris of landslide fell on their house in Kot village of Tehri district, SDM Jagdish Lal said.
In another incident near Chinyalisaur in Uttarkashi district, a large chunk of land was washed away in a cloudburst.
Uttarkashi received maximum 72 mm of rainfall since last night, whereas Chamoli and Rudraprayag got 60 mm of showers, the MeT department said.
Most of the rivers in the state, including Mandakini, Alaknanda, Bhagirathi, Pindar and Ganga, are in spate following continuous rainfall over the past few days.
Meanwhile, efforts to trace Almora SDM Ajay Arora, who had fallen in the Mandakini river on July 31 after slipping from a makeshift bridge, remains untraceable.
"We are yet to find clue to the SDM's whereabouts. PAC divers are still on the job scouring the Mandakini to trace him but to no avail," Rudraprayag Disaster Management Officer Meera Kaintura said.
