Seasonal rainfall and landslides across parts of South Asia have led to the deaths of more than 100 people and have affected millions more, officials said this week. Nepal’s National Emergency Operation Center said at least 78 people died there and 32 others remain missing. Nepalese authorities deployed more than 40,000 soldiers and police officers to distribute food, tents, and medicine to those affected. In the northeastern Indian state of Assam, flooding killed at least 19 people and affected about 4.5 million others.
