Home Ministry Issues Warning Following Manaslu Avalanche: Urges Vigilance Near Budhigandaki

In the wake of a massive avalanche originating from Mount Manaslu this morning, the Ministry of Home Affairs has issued a stern advisory to residents living in the vicinity of the Budhigandaki River in Gorkha, urging heightened vigilance in anticipation of potential consequences.

The avalanche, cascading into the Birendra Lake nestled beneath the towering peak of Mount Manaslu, triggered an overflow, exacerbating concerns over the safety of downstream areas along the Budhigandaki River. Recognizing the potential threat posed by the heightened water flow, the Home Ministry has underscored the importance of preemptive measures to mitigate the risks associated with potential flooding.

Ministry Spokesperson Narayan Prasad Bhattarai emphasized the need for prompt action in the face of looming dangers. “The possibility of a flood presents a significant risk, and in light of this, we urge the affected population to take timely preventive measures,” stated Bhattarai.

While the situation remains fluid, initial assessments by the District Police Office, Gorkha, indicate no immediate threat of further loss. Upon receiving reports of the avalanche, a rapid response team was dispatched to the site to assess the situation and provide necessary assistance.

Despite assurances of no immediate risk, authorities remain vigilant and continue to monitor developments closely. As uncertainties loom over the stability of the Budhigandaki River, residents in the affected areas are urged to exercise caution and remain prepared for any eventualities.

The unfolding events serve as a poignant reminder of the unpredictable forces of nature and the imperative of proactive measures in safeguarding lives and property in vulnerable regions. As the situation evolves, authorities stand poised to address challenges and ensure the safety and well-being of all affected communities.
