Kathmandu, July 12, 2016: The flooded Bhoteskoshi River has swept away seven more houses in Tatopani of Sindhupalchok in the central Nepal in the past 24 hours.

As many as 145 houses in two kilometers of area, from Tatopani Bazaar to Liping, are at high risk of flooding,  according to Inspector Khumlal Bhusal at the Kodari-based Border Police Office.

An incessant rainfall in the Tatopani area has increased water level in the Bhotekoshi River.

Similarly, 13 houses in Barhabise also face risk from the swollen river as it continues eroding soil.

A cemented bridge linking Ramche and Barhabise VDCs is also at risk of being washed away.
