August 14, 2017: At least 70 people have killed and more than thousands left homeless in southern Nepal due to flood and landslides. Relief workers said that 75 districts of the country were either submerged or had been hit by landslides after heavy rains lashed the Himalayan nation.

Information and Communication Minister Mohan Bahadur Basnet said that, the death toll was expected to rise with another 50 people reported missing. The tourists were stranded in Sauraha as the swollen Rapti and Budhirapti rivers inundated many hotels in the Mid-Nepal tourist destination, according to media reports.
Suman Ghimire, chairman of the Regional Hotel Association, said that around 700 tourists, including 200 Nepalese and 200 Indian visitors were trapped and around 100 hotels were waterlogged. He also said that the vehicles of some tourists were swept away in the floods.
Some 100,000 people were displaced across Nepal and several villages are under the risk of flood.
