The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Authority (NDRRMA) has warned the general public to remain vigilant of risks of flood and landslide for the next three days in view of pre-monsoon rainfall.

The Authority has also urged the concerned agencies to put in place necessary preparation to avoid possible loss of lives and properties from rain-induced disasters. As rainfall is likely to take place in most of the parts of the country on May 27-29 due to the emergence of cyclones in West Bengal, it may trigger disasters, said Authority Chief Anil Pokharel.

The Meteorological Forecasting Division has forecasted heavy rainfall in some parts of Province 1, Province 2, Gandaki and Lumbini Provinces from May 27-29. Heavy rainfall, thunderstorms, and wind storm are likely in the plain areas of the provinces, according to the Division.

Moderate rain with lightning and thunderstorms are to take place in some areas of Karnali and Sudurpaschim provinces. Likewise, light to moderate snowfall and rainfall is likely in mountainous and high hill areas of Gandaki, Bagmati, and Province 1.

A request was made to the public to ring up toll-free number 1155 to know about possible rainfall and floods and contact another toll-free number 1149 for emergency rescue and relief.

The Authority has directed the concerned agency to call back climbers on an expedition to avoid possible menace stemming from bad weather.
