MYAGDI, Sept 2: Eleven houses were swept away by floods in the Khahare river in Beg-6 of Myagdi.
The houses in the Begkhola village near the Beni-Jomsom road were swept away, according to the District Police Office. Likewise, a bailey bridge and a suspension bridge over the Begkhola along the road were also swept away, police said.

Four other families at risk were shifted to safer location. Locals and police are working to remove people to safer places and look for those missing.
Meanwhile, a team from the Nepal Red Cross Society has left for the affected site along with relief materials for the flood affected. RSS
