Landslides, Flashfloods Kill 32, Displace Over 20,000 People In Nepal

Nepal

Kathmandu, Nepal (AHN) - New landslides and flashfloods, triggered by torrential rain have killed 13 more people across Nepal, with the death toll reaching 32 for the week, officials said.

The floods have displaced more than 20,000 families, Nepal's Home Ministry said.

The Ministry said it has deployed rescue helicopters, food and other relief materials to those affected areas.

The floods have seriously affected the southern districts of Nepal, especially Nepalgunj and Janakpur, where the rescue efforts have been hampered by the increasing water levels. Market places, educational institutions and transportation service have remained closed down for about a week because of the flooding in southern Nepal.
