The NEA Mahendranagar distribution said the wind brought down electric poles along with transformers and snapped cables, putting the loss at over Rs 7.5 million. The wind let down 174   poles at Raikwar  Bichawa of Krishnapur municipality alone, while 100 at  Bhimdatta municipality, 150 at areas covered by the Belauri distribution centre, 35 at Shuklaphanta and 30 at Bedkot municipality. It damaged two transformers. The repairing works are going on in full swing.  Electricity supply to major market areas and rural areas has been already restored.
