  Failed Warning System Behind Massive Damage

    BARDIYA, Aug 19: Victims of the Babai River flooding have said that the massive damage to human lives and properties was a result of the negligence of the local authorities. Locals said that the officials made no efforts to repair the flood warning system despite repeated requests, and so the siren, which should have gone off after the rise in the water level, never blared.

Krishna Khatri in Tappa village of Tulsipur VDC, whose house suffered damages during the past floods in 1999, was completely destroyed in the recent Babai River flooding. He has now lost complete hope of safety during disasters as even the early warning system could not help them at the time of trouble.
