KATHMANDU, August 15: Floods caused by the incessant downpour across the country that inundated many human settlements have claimed lives of many persons. They have disrupted transport system by destroying roads and bridges. In Some areas, Nepal Army had to use a make-shift bridge to take relief materials to the victims.

The pictures showing these scenarios are shown below:
