Heavy downpour has already triggered a flood-like situation in some places and now with rains likely to intensify further, some intense flooding cannot be ruled out.

According to Skymetweather, the intensity of rain will increase along the foothills of Nepal. As most of the rivers flow via Nepal to Bihar, the heavy downpour may aggravate the flood-like situation. Rivers like Kosi, Karcha and Baghmati may swell in the wake of heavy rains.
