• Dozens Feared Dead as Nepal Landslides Wipe Out Homes

Landslides triggered by torrential rain swept through two villages in Nepal on Sunday, killing at least 12 people, a government official said. Ten people were killed and 21 declared missing after a massive landslide swept away homes and people in Bahrabise, 100km (62 miles) east of capital Kathmandu near the border with the Tibet region of China, Nepalese government official Murari Wasti said.

Nepal – 12 Dead, 41 Missing After Floods and Landslides in Baglung

The village and the surrounding area were among the regions worst hit by Nepal’s devastating 2015 earthquake and reconstruction work had been continuing when the landslide struck. The torrential rain, which caused a foothill to collapse, destroyed more than 100 houses in Bahrabise.

“We fear more landslides as the soil has grown weaker after the earthquake,” said Nimphunjo Sherpa, mayor of the affected Bahrabise municipality.

The municipality is planning to move some at-risk settlements, he added. Two others died in a landslide in Baglung in the northwest.

Both landslides struck the villages before dawn and people could not escape to safety, rescuers said.

“Rescuers are looking for those who are missing,” Wasti told Reuters news agency.

The latest fatalities took the death toll from landslides and flash floods in the June-September monsoon season to 314. At least 111 people remain missing and 160 have been injured, Wasti said.
