Rescuers struggle in Nepal to reach storm-hit area
Villagers who survived a powerful rainstorm that killed at least 28 people and injured hundreds in southern Nepal searched for food and shelter Monday as rescuers struggled to reach remote areas.
High winds during the storm Sunday night flipped cars and blew a bus carrying at least 40 people off a highway, killing some.
Police said most of the deaths were caused by collapsing walls and falling bricks in homes and toppled trees and electrical poles.
The storm swept through villages in a farming region in Bara and Parsa districts.
