Death toll from Nepal floods, landslide rises to 40The death toll from floods and landslides in Nepal has jumped to at least 40, officials said Sunday, with thousands forced to flee their homes amid days of heavy monsoon rain. Torrential downpours have destroyed homes and infrastructure in more than a dozen districts since Friday morning, and forced families to climb into trees to escape the rapidly rising waters. “Since Friday, at least 40 people have been killed in the floods and landslides,” home ministry spokesman Deepak Kafle told AFP, upgrading the previous toll of 25.
