Dezenas de mortos nas cheias da Índia, Bangladesh e Nepal

July 15, 2019 - Morreram dezenas de pessoas e milhões foram deslocadas de suas
casas após fortes chuvas de monção que causaram devastação
no Nepal, Bangladesh e norte da Índia.

Flooding and landslides triggered by heavy rainfall have killed at least 65 people in Nepal in the past few days, with more deaths reported across the border in India and Bangladesh.

At least 30 other people were missing in Nepal, either swept away by swollen rivers or buried by mudslides since monsoon rains began pounding the region on Friday.

Floods have forced more than three million people from their homes across north and northeastern India. Worst affected is the Indian state of Bihar, where some 1.9 million people have fled their homes due to rising waters, a state government release said.

More than 1.7 million people in Assam have been displaced by the floods.

In Cox’s Bazar district, shelter to some 700,000 Rohingya refugees who fled violence in neighbouring Myanmar, more than 100,000 people have been displaced.
