Triggered by torrential monsoon rains, the floods and landslides have affected 800,000 people, while more than 5,600 people were shifted to relief camps.

The search for 15 missing people is ongoing.

The floods and landslides caused $3 billion worth of losses, submerging 130,000 houses and destroying land.
