Kathmandu: Nepal’s Ministry of Home Affairs said on Tuesday that 19 districts of the country have been badly affected by floods and landslides.

At least 21 people have died, while around 24 are still missing due to flooding and landslide incidents in Nepal following heavy rainfall, informed the local administrations here.

Several highways have been obstructed while domestic flights have been suspended, according to the officials. The rain and flooding have hugely impacted the paddy harvesting in several parts of the country. Farmers were all set to harvest the paddy but due to the incessant rainfalls, thousands of hectares of paddy that was all set to harvest have been submerged in the water.

The Meteorological Forecasting Division (MFD) said the rain will continue for some more days with chances of snowfall in high hilly and mountainous regions.

The low-pressure weather system developed in the Bay of Bengal and the central part of India are having an impact on the weather system of Nepal.
