Nepal: Massive Avalanche Triggers Overflow In Birendra Lake

Share on:

In Nepal, a massive avalanche descended from the slopes of Mt Manaslu this morning, cascading into Birendra Lake situated below the peak in the northern part of the country, triggering its overflow. There is no report of any damage or casualty as the site is situated away from human settlement. However, the resultant surge has led to a significant rise in the water levels of the river. The Government has issued a precautionary notice to residents living near downstream areas of the river and also issued a warning to the people residing in the vicinity of Budhi Gandaki River in Gorkha to remain alert due to the potential ramifications of heightened water flow. Security personnel have been dispatched to the affected region as an immediate response.
