Since 1 July, Nepal has been grappling with the impact of heavy rainfall, leading to a series of disastrous events including landslides, floods, and severe weather-related incidents, resulting in loss of lives and damage to properties.

According to the Disaster Risk Reduction Portal of Nepal (DRR), the heavy rains have claimed the lives of 23 people. Among them, 12 individuals tragically lost their lives in devastating landslides, while 11 others perished in severe weather-related incidents. The situation has caused immense grief and devastation to the affected communities.

Apart from the casualties, the heavy rainfall has left 56 people injured, highlighting the urgency of medical assistance and relief efforts in the region. Additionally, the calamitous weather has severely impacted almost 1,670 families, leaving them in distress and in dire need of support and resources.

As a result of the torrential downpours and subsequent disasters, 130 individuals have been displaced from their homes, exacerbating the already dire humanitarian situation in the affected areas.

Looking ahead, the Disaster Risk Reduction Portal of Nepal forecasts that over the next 24 hours, the country is likely to experience light to moderate rainfall across most parts, particularly in the central regions. This weather prediction underscores the need for preparedness and prompt response measures to mitigate the potential risks and damages caused by the ongoing weather disturbances.

The government and humanitarian organizations are actively coordinating efforts to provide immediate assistance and support to those affected by the calamities. Rescue operations, medical aid, and essential supplies are being mobilized to bring relief to the affected communities.

The situation in Nepal remains critical, and authorities are calling for increased vigilance and cooperation from residents in vulnerable areas. The safety and well-being of the people are paramount, and all necessary measures are being taken to address the challenges posed by the continuous heavy rainfall and its consequences.
