The Ministry of Home Affairs says 121 persons have died and 28 are missing in various disaster incidents since October 18, the Ministry of Home Affairs says.

As per the information provided by the National Emergency Operations Centre under the ministry, 44 people have been injured and 179 houses have been damaged due to the incidents throughout the country.

The loss of life and property occurred due to the disasters triggered by the incessant rains from October 17 until October 20. The precipitation was caused by the combined influence of two weather systems developed a week after the exit of the monsoon.

The highest number of casualties was reported on October 20, when 63 people were killed and 19 went missing due to rain-induced disasters. Likewise, 29 people died on October 21 and 13 persons were killed on October 22.

The ministry has said a search is on for the people gone missing in the disaster-related incidents while shelters are being managed for those displaced due to the same.
