Many people died after being buried under rubble or roofs caught by the wind, or under electrical transmission towers knocked over or uprooted trees, the Himalayan Times said. "Search and rescue workers have been deployed", Bhattarai said, warning that the toll may rise, with information about the disaster still coming in.

"I was at home getting ready for dinner when the storm hit - it was unbelievable".

Prakash Tharu, a volunteer on the ground, described a scene of devastation in the villages.

Nepal's hard terrain and limited infrastructure often leaves emergency workers struggling to reach far-flung areas.

Meanwhile, the Province 2 Council of Ministers held a meeting Monday morning and urged the central government to declare a state of emergency while asking medical institutions to offer free treatment to the injured.
