Flood in the Melamchi river last night has swept away the building housing the Melamchi radio station. The building was uprooted and swept away at around 12:40 last night, said Radio Melamchi Chair Damber Rasik.

It is noted that the floods triggered by incessant rainfall had swept away houses and land, and converted Helambu, Kiul and Melamchi market into a desert on July 15.

The Radio Melamchi's building had been submerged in the floodwater then but was still standing. The building was abandoned and the radio station is being operated from a different location.

Further details about the damage from Saturday's floods are yet to be collected. Meanwhile, the local administration has urged the people living in and around the Melamchi river bank to stay alert.
