2021 Aug 25, 12:09, Kathmandu

Approximately 663 houses at Patan in Vyas Municipality-5 in Tanahun district have been exposed to risks of being swept away by local flooded Madi river. The river has eroded the riverbanks and started advancing towards the settlements, said local people. Physical infrastructures belonging to dozens of organisations have also been at risk of flooding.

As a result, the local people often spent sleepless nights. "We do not know when the flooded river will enter and submerge the village. We are in constant fear," said a local resident.

The municipality mayor Baikuntha Neupane has assured of controlling the river, said Tej Bahadur Nepali, secretary of the village development organisation.
