Severe monsoon flooding and landslides killed almost two dozen people in eastern Nepal on Saturday.

The Ministry also stated that personnel of the Nepalese Army, Nepal Police, the Armed Police Force, trained security persons and other human resources have been mobilized under the leadership of the local administrations for carrying out search and rescue in the flood affected and inundated areas.

But dozens were still missing somewhere at the bottom of the ravine, with soldiers and rescuers clawing through the mud and rock to reach them. "But we are more focused on rescuing those who are alive than collecting details about the dead", he said, indicating the death toll could go up.

"Pained by the loss of lives due to landslide-related accidents in HP's Mandi district", he posted on Twitter, using the acronym for Himachal Pradesh state.

The meteorological department forecast that central and western plains were likely to receive heavy rainfall from this evening.
