Continuous rainfall across the country for the past two days and resulting floods and landslides have claimed 58 lives while dozens others are missing across the country. At least thirty deaths were reported until Saturday night which, until Sunday evening, climbed to 58. Some 35,843 houses have been inundated, 1,000 houses are damaged and 305 livestock died in the floods, the Ministry data says.
Fortunately, all our Global Peace Exchange volunteers are back in the States safe and sound. Unfortunately, some villages around Meghauli is under water, but so far there has been no human loss nor significant damage. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this terrible tragedy. We (GPE) have setup a GoFundMe page to raise donations for the victims of floods and landslides.
