BAJHANG, Nov 13: After the earthquake in Patadewal of Khaptadchanna Rural Municipality-6 on Saturday evening again, Nepal Police has been using loudspeakers urging the local people to stay outside their houses.

The earthquake that occurred last Tuesday at midnight has weakened the houses of the locals and hence they have been asked to stay outdoors as aftershocks continue to hit the area, said Sub-Police Inspector Ram Bahadur Bam of Patadewal Police Station. It is risky to stay inside the same houses after the earthquake on Saturday, he added.

Residents in Patadewal, Rajkot, Tiune, Pujarigaon are currently staying outside their homes.

Even in ward no. 5 of the same rural municipality, locals are staying outside their houses. Kul Prasad Joshi, a local resident, said that the houses that suffered damage in Tuesday's earthquake were further damaged on Saturday.

Meanwhile, residents in the district headquarters of Chainpur have spent the night on the grounds of the Sudurpaschimanchal Boarding School.
