The death toll from three days of flooding and torrential rain in Nepal and India rose to more than 180 people Monday, as relief teams sent food, tents and medicine to prevent any outbreaks of disease.The worst-hit areas were in western Nepal and northern India, where swirling floodwaters submerged hundreds of villages and swept away homes made of mud and straw.At least 100 people have died in Nepal and 84 in neighboring India since Thursday due to torrential rains, authorities said.In northern India, at least 50 people have died in Uttarakhand state, many of them washed away as rivers overflowed, submerging villages and fields.The June-September monsoon season often brings flooding to Nepal and India.Last year, more than 6,000 people were killed as floods and landslides swept through Uttarakhand state during the monsoon season.
