This year the monsoon rains arrived on 10 July and triggered severe landslides and localized flooding in some parts of the country. From 12 to 15 July, 26 people died due to landslides in remote Village Development Committees (VDCs) in Baglung and Bajura districts. Rescue teams faced difficulties reaching the remote locations, and displaced families and damaged water pipes remained public health priorities for days. Mahottari district was affected by rains on 25 July. Two days later incessant rains caused widespread flooding in the Terai belt. By 27 July Banke,Dhanusa, Siraha and Saptari districts had more than 1,000 displaced families each. At the time of writing, Nepal Red Cross Society (NRCS) assesses that the floods and landslides have caused at least 146 deaths, displaced more than 22,277 families and affected approximately 467,742 people in 47 districts (21 August). A Central Disaster Relief Committee meeting took place on 27 July followed by a high-level meeting in the Ministry of Home Affairs (MOHA) on 28 July. Further coordination meetings were organized by OCHA, NRCS, DP-Net and WHO during subsequent days and supported by active email exchange among key responders.
