Seven settlements at high risk of landslides in Parbat


KATHMANDU: A total of seven settlements in Phalewas Municipality in the district are at high risk of landslides. Local authority has recommended shifting the settlements to safer zones after a geographical assessment.

The Disaster Management Committee under the municipality has recommended both the state and federal governments to transfer these settlements to safer zones.

According to Mayor Padam Pani Sharma, about 100 families in these settlements are at high risk of landslides there. He added that the area is fragile due to continuous rainfall that can cause a landslide at any time.

The settlements at risk are Mudkuwa Churi of Ward No 4, Phalla of Ward-10, Dardare of Ward-2, Purkot and Rukdi of Ward-3 and Rahale of Ward-6 in the municipality.

Mayor Sharma added that the risk of possible landslides is created while constructing roads. The municipality is studying a possible alternate that will be adopted soon, Sharma said.
