The Kathmandu Valley witnessed heavy rainfall, causing floods in the river and streams. Many parts of Bhaktapur have also been flooded.

The Weather Forecasting Division has informed that Nepal will have rainfall for some more days as the low pressure range of monsoon is north of the average location (near Nepal). The heavy rainfall is caused also because of the monsoon wind and low pressure system around Bihar.

Currently, there is light to moderate rainfall in Madhes, Bagmati, Lumbini and Gandaki Provinces.

Meanwhile, the Division has issued an alert, urging people not to go near the rivers and streams which are flooded with downpour. The flood forecasting section in the Division has appealed to all to stay alert till 11:00am as the water level was still rising in the rivers and streams.

Two women were stranded due to a flood at Kalapani of Shuklaphanta Municipality-7 last night after the stream was flooded from huge rainfall in the Chure area. They were rescued safely.

The flooded Doda River damaged vegetables, paddy and sugarcane at Tilaki. Disaster Management Committee chair Mangal Prasad Chaudhari said the river eroded the land and damaged crops in the vicinity.

The Narayangarh-Mugling roadway has also been obstructed with a landslide which occurred at Kalikhola of Ichhakamana Rural Municipality-6.
