As many as seven persons have been killed and nine others injured in the monsoon-induced disaster across the country in two days.

A total of 32 houses were completely destroyed in floods, landslides, and inundation triggered by incessant rain across the country on Sunday and Monday.

Landslides occurred in seven districts — Kavre, Rupandehi, Nawalpur, Surkhet, Syangja, Myagdi, and Darchula — on Sunday and Monday due to incessant rain. Likewise, floods occurred in Chitwan, Darchula, and Kanchanpur on Monday. Similarly, incessant rain has affected lives in Udayapur, Palpa, Jhapa, Dang, Rupandehi, Sarlahi, and Bara districts. Human settlements in Parasi and Udayapur have been inundated due to incessant rain.

Eleven houses on the bank Shreebagar Khola have been completely destroyed by torrential rain in Mahakali Municipality-1 of Darchula district. Meanwhile, security personnel dispatched for the rescue shifted 40 to 45 households to safety.

Moreover, 700 households in Dhauri, Sisauli, Bhagalpur among others in Belaka Municipality's wards 2, 3, 8, and 9 are at the risk of inundation as the Saptakoshi Barrage at Dumribote, Belaka-8 may break anytime as the water level has not subsided yet.

Kapilvastu's Chief District Officer (CDO) Dan Bahadur Karki told NepalNews that around 1,900 livestock were lost to floods while four to five houses were reported completely damaged. CDO Karki said that although there were no casualties reported in the district, 1,400  families have been affected by the disasters. 

In Nawalpur only, more than 15,000 people from 3,000 households have been affected due to monsoon-induced disasters — landslides and floods. 

Details of the loss incurred due to the monsoon-induced disasters are awaited.
