The worst flooding to hit Nepal’s western region in a decade—caused by heavy monsoon rains—has killed at least 50 people. Floodwaters from the Rapti River—one of the country's largest rivers—affected as many as 60,000 villagers in 13 districts. Bardiya, Banke and Achham districts 600-800 kilometers west of the capital, Kathmandu, are the worst hit. The flooding has destroyed the farms, killed nearly 2,000 animals, and more than 10,000 tons of food stocks.
