2021 Oct 19, 19:35, Kathmandu

Heavy rain has been caused due to the activation of two weather systems at once, meteorologists said. Abrupt changes in the weather have adversely affected diverse sectors across the country.

Nepal has recently witnessed the joint impacts of low-pressure systems active in the Bay of Bengal and Central India now moving to the Northside and the westerly wind system.

Senior meteorologist Raju Pradhananga told RSS that the systems have caused heavy rain. It will have an impact up to Thursday morning, he said. The weather will gradually open from Thursday afternoon. The system was active since October 17.

Western Nepal, especially Sudur Paschim province has been badly affected due to the coming together of the two systems. The country has focused its attention on the relief and rescue of flood and landslide survivors following the heavy rain.

Though detailed assessment of loss and damage is yet to be ascertained, the natural disaster is reported to have affected over 12 districts. Four people, including two in Doti and one each in Dadeldhura and Kalikot, have so far died in the disastrous events.

Nepal Police and Armed Police Force have been mobilised for relief and rescue in the needed areas.
