Floods and landslides caused by torrential monsoon rains have killed at least 25 people in the last two days across Nepal, officials said on Saturday.

The water level in many rivers has crossed the danger mark, with a threat to houses and livelihood.

"According to the preliminary reports to the ministry over 25 people are feared dead", Home Ministry spokesman Deepak Kafle told AFP.

The floods and landslides triggered by incessant rainfall in several districts across Nepal.

"We are still collecting the details of the loss".

Trump expressed confidence in McMaster, his national security adviser, who has come under fire from conservatives in recent days. But he did take the opportunity to blame former administrations for the strained relationship with North Korea.

The Prime Minister's office issued a statement putting the death toll at more than two dozen since Friday. An official said the government was yet to confirm the total number of deaths and the extent of the damage.

Home Minister Janardan Sharma said in a press conference that of the victims, nine died in landslides while the rest drowned in the floods, Efe news reported.

Shocking footage showed a girl suddenly disappear into muddy water in Kathmandu while navigating a flooded road, only to emerge from another drain 10 metres away a few seconds later.

Almost 100 people died past year Nepal's rainy season, which usually lasts until the end of August.

Nepal's Meteorology Department said precipitations reached 227 ml in some districts and announced that moderate to heavy rain was expected to continue in the centre of the country until Monday.
