Bihar Flood Damage Worsens

After almost three weeks since a dam break in Nepal sent floodwaters into the neighboring state of Bihar, India, reports from the field say damage from flooding is getting worse.

“Essentially, a river exists now in areas where it didn’t before.”

That quote from Catholic Relief Service’s country representative in India, Jennifer Poidatz, hints at the devastation that has forced about 2.6 million people to evacuate their homes.

We expect more updates from India and Nepal soon. We’ll post alerts on the blog as information becomes available.
