The flow of the Marsyangdi River has been disrupted after landslide debris fell into the river along the border of Chame Rural Municipality-4 and 5.

According to Chief District Officer Bishnu Lamichhane, the landslide has blocked the river, posing a threat to the Chame Bazar. The river has been blocked near a bridge connecting the Chame Bazar.

The continuous rainfall is taking place, further increasing the risk of disaster. A large dam has formed with the river blockage. Settlement in the opposite of the Chame Bazar has been already inundated.

 The flood triggered by incessant rains has led to soil erosion near a sole Bailey bridge connecting Chame to the upper Manang. The district administration has already sought the help of the Nepal Army to burst the dam, incessant rains have aborted the efforts towards that end. The Chame folks have been urged to stay alert towards the possibility of any untoward incident from the disaster, according to the CDO.
