Karnali flood displaces over 800 households in Bardiya
BARDIYA: More than 800 families have been displaced after the flooded Karnali River gushed into human settlements.
As many as 800 households in Rajapur Municipality and Geruwa Rural Municipality have been inundated and the families have been shifted to safer places, said Dipesh Chaudhary, Mayor of Rajapur Municipality.
Chief District Officer Bandhu Prasad Banstola said the people living in settlements close to the river bank have been urged not to go to the river for fishing or to collect drifting logs and wood as the water level in the river and rivulets has not receded yet. RSS
