Township in Nepal

Flash floods pose a serious threat to people in mountain regions and have severe downstream effects. In contrast to most glacial lake outburst floods which occur in sparsely populated high mountain regions, a large proportion of flash floods occur in more densely populated middle hill and mid-mountain regions where social, humanitarian and economic impacts are much greater. Numbers are highly uncertain and most likely underreported, but flash floods in the Himalayas are estimated to cause the loss of at least 5000 people every year.
