A house at Bhakimli of Beni Municipality-3 in Myagdi district was swept away by the swollen Dhudhe Khola today morning. The flood in Dudhe Khola rivulet has put 45 houses at risk of wipe-out.

The flood and landslide induced by monsoon rain also swept away the land at Chinakhet, Torakhet, and Lareni as well as road and drinking water pipes. Some 700 meters of land in the human settlement was also destroyed due to the flood.

Beni Municipality-3’s Gem Prasad Gharti shared that the flood swept away the house of Dipa Pun. Altogether 45 households alongside the riverbank of Dudhe Khola were also at risk, added Gharti.

Flood also swept away the livestock of the locals. Narayan Pun’s cattle were swept away by the flood.

Also, the earthquake that occurred at 1 am this morning has put the locals at receiving end of having to stay in an unsafe space. They were compelled to shelter under the open sky in search of a safe place after being ravaged by flood and quake, added Om Bahadur Gharti Magar, another local.

Worse of all, since the roads were damaged and blocked due to landslide debris, locals in various parts of the district have been facing transportation difficulties.
