More Than 800 Families Displaced

Bardiya, Oct. 10: Over 800 households have been displaced because of the flooding caused by the Karnali River following continuous rain.

Dipesh Chaudhary, the mayor of Rajapur Municipality, said that families in Rajapur Municipality and Geruwa Rural Municipality have been affected and shifted to safer ground nearby.

The people living in settlements close to the river bank have been informed not to go to the river for fishing or to collect drifting logs and wood as the water level in the rivers has not receded yet, said Chief District Officer Bandhu Prasad Banstola.
