Heavy downpour kill 250 people in South Asia

Intro

Heavy downpour across South Asia has lead to the death of at least 250 on Wednesday, also claiming the lives of children.

Across India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, millions of residents have been affected and hundreds of thousands displaced, with homes and boats washed away.

The annual deluge is crucial to replenishing water supplies in the impoverished region, but the downpour from June to September often turns deadly.

In flood-prone Bangladesh, which is crisscrossed by rivers, around one-third of the country is underwater and 59 people have died, officials said.
