The water level in the Narayani River has crossed the warning level due to continuous rains. According to the Department of Water and Meteorology, the water level in the Narayani River has risen above 7.3 and reached 7.8 meters.
It is considered to have reached the danger level after reaching above 8 meters.
It has been raining continuously in Chitwan since last night. The District Administration Office, Chitwan, has urged to remain vigilant as the water level in Narayani may rise further due to continuous rains in the hilly areas. As the water level in Narayani rises, it increases the risk of erosion and inundation in the western Chitwan region.
The Narayani River has been causing more damage in wards 26, 27 and 28 of Bharatpur Metropolitan City. The District Administration Office, Chitwan, has already issued a notice urging people to be vigilant to avoid possible risks as the flow of water in the river is increasing.
