Nepal Army had a helicopter on standby in Kathmandu at night, but due to continued bad weather the aircraft could not be sent. The government said it had sent relief material and shelter by road early Monday morning from Kathmandu, and deployed two units of the Nepal Army for rescue.
Most of the deaths and injuries were caused by houses being demolished by the high winds, trees falling on at least one bus, cars being blown away, and by flying debris. Most people were indoors to take shelter from the storm, and were preparing for their supper.
