Houses, crops and livestock have been severely affected by the floods.
Since 6 August, the region of Mangra County in Tsolho Prefecture, eastern Tibet, has been seriously affected by severe rainfall and hailstorms, according to Free Tibet’s research partner Tibet Watch.
The severe weather conditions have caused flooding and the destruction of property, as well as massive landslides. The heavy floods have reportedly washed away houses, destroyed the crops of the season and caused the death of many livestock.
Meanwhile, the overflowing of Machu (Yellow River), caused by the heavy rainfall, also poses a serious threat to the safety of many villages in the downstream region.
No rescue or government aid has been sent to the affected areas of Tibet.
