The worst flooding in more than a decade across parts of Nepal, India and Bangladesh has impacted at least 24 million people.
More than 800 people have lost their lives across the three countries since the beginning of the monsoon season on June 1, according to The Guardian.
The death toll and numbers of those impacted are rising as flood waters recede and reveal the full extent of the destruction. However, additional downpours will threaten more lives and property as the monsoon continues.
Flooding in Nepal claimed at least 141 lives while the death toll in Bangladesh has climbed to at least 115.
The death toll rose about 250 in eastern Indian state of Bihar this weekend. During the worst of the flooding, almost all of the Kaziranga National Park, home to the endangered one-horned rhino, was submerged.
The park director, Satyendra Singh, said the flooding is the worst in three decades and has claimed the lives of at least 225 animals, including 15 of the rare rhinos.
In Nepal, a one-horned rhino was saved after being swept 42 km (26 miles) from the Chitwan National Park into northern India by flood waters, according to the BBC.

Four other Rhinos are still missing, and a fifth was found dead in the flood waters of the park.
While conditions are currently slowly improving across Nepal, northeastern India and Bangladesh, scattered monsoon downpours are expected through midweek which could result in additional isolated flooding.
"Hato is expected weaken as it crosses the mountainous terrain of northern Myanmar Friday and Friday night," said Accuweather Meteorologist Rob Richards.
"While some moisture from Hato will spill into northeastern India this weekend, causing locally heavy downpours, the main flooding threats will be in northern Myanmar and possibly Bangladesh," Richards added.
Meanwhile, frequent downpours will focus on the area from northern Andhra Pradesh and western Odisha into eastern Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh this week.
These areas have dodged the worst flooding so far this season but will need to be on alert for flooding and travel delays.
The monsoon season typically runs from early June through early October across these areas.
