As of now, India, Nepal, and Bangladesh are being hit by the most flood calamities seen in the region for more than a decade. The damage done to the infrastructure and agricultural lands is very severe with 1,200 people known to have died so far, while more than 40 million have been displaced but also there are fatal landslides in Nepal, destruction of entire villages in Bangladesh, and buildings collapsing in India.It is also thought that some 1,000,000 acres of agricultural land has been washed away, it will severely limit many peoples' access to food over the coming months.
Heavy monsoon is what has caused flooding, so far estimated 30 quadrillion liters of water has covered on Bangladesh alone. Compare this to the 86 trillion liters that has so far fallen on Houston. 
A third of Bangladesh is already under water, it doesn’t look like things are going to get better anytime soon. Not only is the monsoon season expected to last this year until the end of September, but even when the flood waters drain away the impact will be catastrophic.
“Even though flood waters are receding in some parts, it provides little respite,” said Thomas Chandy, the CEO of Save the Children, who are working in the region. “The mammoth recovery operation is only just beginning. The challenge now is to prevent potential outbreaks of disease like cholera or diarrhea.”
