“3 thousand families are waiting to be rescued”

“According to the information received from the region, flood caused severe damage, particularly in plain regions in the south of the country,” says Mahmut Topbaş, from IHH Southern Asia Desk. “More than hundred souls are lost in Nepal due to the disaster and thousands of houses became unusable.” Topbaş states that many people are missing due to the flood and summarizes the current situation in Nepal:

“People who had to flee their homes and run to high places looking for safety face a serious hardship now. Hundreds of hectares of agricultural land are destroyed. Meteorology officials predict that the rain that has started days ago and poured down non-stop will continue for a while. In Saptari district, about 50 thousand houses became unusable due to the flood. 3 thousand families from various parts of the country are stuck where they are and waiting to be rescued. In Morang where the Muslim society constitutes the majority, floodwaters covered even the airport in Biratnagar. Families were forced to leave their homes taking only some food and basic stuff with them.”
