Deadly floods and landslides hit Jhapa

Posted by Anup Baral July 24, 2016 :
A rain-swollen Surunga Stream has caused inundation along a stretch from Tulasibari Chok in Kankai municipality-5 to Chapramari in Jhapa district. The stream has inundated one-kilometre-long stretch along Amarpath, a road which connects Suranga with Digalbank. The flooded stream has swept away part of the road and brought vehicular movement to a halt.

Sri Prasad Kharel, a local, said floodwater started gushing into settlements from 7 am. People are having a hard time negotiating the stretch, motorists are facing great difficulties wading through the swollen stream.
