A woman from Machhapuchhre rural municipality-1 in Kaski died when a flood-fed rivulet swept her away. Ward Chairperson Birendra Gurung informed that the Khahare rivulet swept away 40-year-old Leeladevi Pariyar of Tuse at around 8.30 pm last night.

Issuing a notice on Tuesday evening, the District Administration Office cautioned people of flood, inundation and landslides in vulnerable areas due to rising levels in Seti, Mardi, Madi, Sardi, Bijayapur and Harpan of the district.
