Kosi Flood

Corrupt officials blamed for Kosi flood that leaves millions ... Kathmandu's apathy towards timely maintenance of the barrage that was breached ..... brought the Kosi barrage into being in 1956. ... The barrage's estimated lifespan of 30 years expired in 1986 but the river's morphology — it was showing a reverse tendency to shift eastward — began changing even earlier. ....... Its new meeting point with the Ganga in the south-east is yet to be known since the Kosi's course has become totally unpredictable. Satellite images show an ever widening expanse of gushing water through the affected districts....... The solution that lies in constructing a series of high dams in Nepal has never been given a serious bilateral push
