  The street became a river in 30 minutes
by Saagar

A few times I have experienced flash floods in Pokhara.
This has been during the post-monsoon period as well as during spring-time visits. Typically, there is a build-up of clouds during the early afternoon, and they burst around 3-4 pm. Huge amounts of wanter may fall in just a short period of time. The lights in the city may go out, the street becomes river, and you might loose your foothold trying to negotiate your way through.
No life-danger, though, just a major nuisance and you may not wish to have your bag and contents taken by the current into Fewa lake as you stumble through the streets.
