    The reconstruction of the storm-ravaged 66 kVA double-circuit Parwanipur-Birgunj and 33 kVA Birgunj-Kalaiya transmission lines is expected to take at least a month, the Nepal Electricity Authority said.

    The power utility said that it was still assessing the details of the extent of the damage caused by the rainstorm in Bara and Parsa. Many electricity pylons need to be reinstalled, and it can take up to two months, the utility said.

    Around 1,500 power poles were knocked down by the rainstorm causing damage estimated at Rs150 million, the electricity authority said.
