And our first stop is in Southern Asia, where massive flooding tied to monsoon season is soaking parts of Nepal, as well as areas of India and neighboring Bangladesh.
Heavy rains are typical in this region during August, which is when the monsoon rains blow in. But aide workers affiliated with the Red Cross say this season has been worse than usual, that some of the affected areas haven't seen flooding like this in decades.
Hundreds of people have been killed in floods and landslides. Tens of thousands of homes have been damaged or destroyed, and with some communities completely cut off, the only way to get them help and supplies is by boat.

The waters are receding in Nepal and a government spokesman there says the situation is improving. Aide workers are on the lookout for diseases that can follow natural disasters like malaria and other bacterial infections. They can be spread through tainted water supplies and the lack of sanitation.
Southern Asia is one of the wettest regions on the planet and many cities there were not properly built to account for flooding.
