Nepal on Wednesday called off a search for survivors and declared 156 people dead after a landslide at the weekend, making it the deadliest to hit the Himalayan nation in three decades.
The landslide took place early Saturday at Mankha village in Sindhupalchok district.
The impending flood threat near the Kosi river basin of Bihar has abated now even as the evacuation of villagers to a safer place is in progress. The flood threat began due to the landslide in Nepal.
Rescuers on Sunday ruled out finding any more survivors of a landslide in northeast Nepal that is feared to have buried dozens of people under tonnes of mud and rocks.
The Bihar government on Saturday ordered immediate evacuation in four districts due
to imminent floods in the Kosi river.
At least 50 people have been killed and 12,000 others displaced across Nepal due to landslides and floods triggered by incessant rain over the past three weeks, the government said.
At least seven people, including one Indian, were killed and seven others, six of them from Darjeeling, missing when a massive landslide triggered by heavy rain buried five vehicles on a highway in eastern Nepal.
At least two people were killed and over a dozen, including five Indians, were reported missing when five vehicles were hit by a landslide on a highway in Nepal Sunday night, police said Monday.
