At least 47 dead in Nepal flooding after days of downpours

Nepal government appeals for rescue and relief support

Landslides and floods are common in Nepal during the monsoon season and the rest of the region.

Hundreds of cities, towns and villages in 25 districts in Nepal's flatlands neighboring India have experienced flooding due to incessant rainfall, inundating 34,843 houses.

In Nepal, authorities said they had found at least 49 bodies of people killed by monsoon-related causes.

Shankar Hari Acharya, the chief of Nepal's national emergency centre, said on Sunday that thousands were forced to move to higher grounds.


Home Mnister Janardan Sharma's secretariat informed 36 have gone missing and 17 people are reported injured in floods and landslides across the country. The floods have created havoc in districts like Banke, Bardiya, Dhanusa, Saptari, Siraha, Sunsari and Morang.

In a press release issued this evening, the Ministry of Home Affairs has urged the industrialists, philanthropists, and humanitarian and social organizations to provide relief including foodstuff required by the families in distress due to the natural disasters.

The government will take up the issue with India during Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba's India visit slated for next week, Shahi said yesterday. Highways were either damaged or inundated, disrupting transport, Nepal police said.

The meteorological department forecast said central and western plains were likely to receive more rainfall over the next couple of days. More than 1,000 houses were destroyed in floods that killed an estimated 400 livestock, the Kathmandu Post reported.
