Two women killed in landslide in Darchula District, Nepal.

Two women have been killed, and a further two injured, in a landslide at Chhapari Village in the Nepalese part of Darchula District (part of the district lies in the Indian province of Uttarakhand), following heavy rains. The women, who were collecting fodder at the time of the incident, have been named as Manamati Devi Bam, who died instantly, Dhana Devi Bam, who died of her injuries while undergoing treatment, and Madhavi Devi Bam and Sarawoti Bam, who are undergoing treatment in a hospital on the Indian side of the border.

Nepal and Uttarakhand have suffered extensive flooding following the onset of the Monsoon Season earlier this month. This has lead to a number of landslide events, as well as rivers bursting their banks and the partial collapse of the Chorabari Glacier in Uttarakhand. Landslides are a common problem after severe weather events, as excess pore water pressure can overcome cohesion in soil and sediments, allowing them to flow like liquids. Approximately 90% of all landslides are caused by heavy rainfall, but the situation in Uttarkhand is thought to have been made much worse by extensive deforestation, sand extraction and quarrying (much of it illegal) and unregulated building construction across the affected area.

  2. I’m Charles David by name, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scam everywhere, Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Dr Purva Pius ( A God fearing man) who lend me a loan of $237,000 under 72 working hours without any stress. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan from this company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them i filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my shock I was given the loan, If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him now via: {urgentloan22@gmail.com}

    I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders.

    Thanks you Dr Purva Pius Loan service for your help.
