La dantesca huella del monzón en Asia

Las lluvias de un monzón de proporciones históricas asolaron Nepal, Bangladesh e India durante semanas y movilizaron al mayhor esfuerzo en décadas de las organizaciones internacionales de rescate.

Unas 1.200 personas murieron en inundaciones y deslaves en los tres países, mientras al menos 12 millones debieron abandonar sus hogares.

Las torrenciales precipitaciones monzónicas destruyeron decenas de miles de viviendas, escuelas y hospitales, según la Oficina de las Nacones Unidas para la Coordinación de Asuntos Humanitarios, que estimó en 41 millones el total de afectados en los tres países.

Muchas de las áreas inundadas padecían ya altos índices de desnutrición. El desastre hace temer escasez de agua y epidemias, porque miles de hectáreas de las granjas quedaron destruidas.

Esto es lo que las inundaciones hicieron con Nepal, Bangladesh e India.
