Earlier, he had said "over 400 were injured in rainstorms in Nepal".

Numerous victims were crushed to death under the debris of their houses or by fallen trees and poles.

The disaster comes as Nepal nears the fourth anniversary of a devastating quake that killed almost 9,000 people and left millions homeless.

He added: "We rushed out to help".

Most of the injured belong to Pheta and Bhulahi Bharwaliya areas in Bara's Pheta rural municipality, where the hailstorm hit hard. Overturned cars blocked some roads.

Storms causing such high casualties in spring are rare in Nepal.

Following the decision to pull Chick-fil-A from Buffalo, a spokesperson for the chain said that recent reports "continue to drive an inaccurate narrative about our brand".

"I've never seen anything like this".

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.
