A temporary bridge in ward no. 11 of Melamchi Municipality has been damaged by a flood last night.

A hump pipe was installed as a temporary bridge after the concrete bridge over the Melamchi river was washed away by the floods in July last year. Local Dasharath Danuwar said that the road was closed as soon as the temporary bridge was damaged.

Locals of 6 wards in the municipality have been affected as a result.

Meanwhile, fearing floods, locals around Helambu and Melamchi left their homes and went to safer grounds at midnight. Prabha Bhandari of Helambu-2 said that she left home at 12 am and went to a higher location.
