PDF File Size: 2.12 MB | Download   
In May 2012, a massive flash flood just north of Pokhara, the district headquarters of Kaski District and the main tourist hub in the Western Region of Nepal, caused immense destruction. In a matter of seconds, a powerful wall of water swept away several settlements along the Seti River, breaching river banks downstream and damaging the water supply for Pokhara, a city with a quarter million inhabitants. Reportedly, 28 people lost their lives and many more were injured. In July and August 2012, Dang District in the Mid Western Tarai Region was affected by the flooding of two separate rivers in a period of less than two weeks. The floods, which in certain areas reached up to one and half meters (five feet) above the normal water level,damaged over two thousand shelters, houses or buildings – completely destroying around 165 – mostly those of poor families. It left the area cut-off for several days and many households lost cattle, stored grains or crops in the fields. Reportedly, two people lost their lives and many more were affected.
