Seti river is located in western region of Nepal. It rises in the foothills of the Machhapuchhre and Annapurna mountains of the Central Himalayas and is one of the tributaries of the Gandaki River system. In the early hours of 5th May 2012, the usually calm flow of the Seti river swelled unexpectedly into a huge flood, claiming the lives of many and destroying billions of rupees worth of property. The flood lasted for about three hours.
Understanding the scientific cause of such a flash flood during the dry season and the devastation brought about by it has been a matter of great concern and urgency for all. Incidents such as this have flagged the need for timely research and disaster risk preparedness to avert similar disasters in the future that could occur here or in other parts of the country.
