2017/07下旬~08中旬 ミャンマー、ベトナム、ネパール、バングラデシュ、およびインドの一部でモンスーンによる水害深刻化

2017/08/14
Heavy monsoon rains in Nepal, Bangladesh and India have killed more than 200 people in the last week, officials said on Tuesday, as rescue workers rushed to help those stranded by floodwaters.
In Nepal, the death toll from flash floods and landslides rose to 115, with 38 people missing. Relief workers said 26 of Nepal’s 75 districts were either submerged or had been hit by landslides.
Television pictures showed people wading through chest-deep water carrying belongings and livestock.
“We will now focus more on rescue of those trapped in floods and relief distribution. People have nothing to eat, no clothes. So we have to provide them something to eat and save their lives,” said Nepali police spokesman Pushkar Karki.

Heavy monsoon rains in parts of Nepal, Bangladesh and India have killed more than 160 people in the last week, officials said on Tuesday, as authorities rushed to rescue those missing or stranded in flooded areas.
In Nepal, the death toll rose to 115 amid more flash floods and landslides, with 38 people missing. Relief workers said 26 of Nepal’s 75 districts were either submerged or had been hit by landslides after rain lashed the Himalayan nation.
The floods and landslides have also caused massive damage to Nepal’s energy infrastructure, leaving almost half of the country reeling under power outages in what is the worst disaster to hit Nepal in nearly 10 years.
Floods in north Bangladesh have killed at least 27 people in the last few days and affected more than 500,000, many of them fleeing their homes to shelter in camps, officials said. The situation could get worse as heavy rain in parts of neighboring India flow downstream into the low-lying and densely populated country, they said.
In India, scores have died and thousands have fled their homes as monsoon floods swept across the states of Uttarakhand, West Bengal, Bihar and several northeastern states.
In Bihar, at least 40 people are feared dead and over 6.5 million have been affected after heavy rains triggered flash floods so far. The national disaster relief force teams have been airlifted in to help with rescue and relief work, the government said. Media reported that about two million people in the state had been affected, and at least 10 killed.
In Uttarakhand the death toll in landslides following cloudbursts could be as high as 28. Hindustan Times reported that the Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat flew to the rain-hit areas in Pithoragarh district later on Tuesday.

大雨は日本だけじゃなかったんだね。
地球温暖化の流れの中で、この多雨傾向は強まると云われている。

インドやネパールでは毎年のようにモンスーンの水害が起きている。今回は例年以上ということなのだろう。
