(CNN)At least 227 people have died since flash floods ravaged swathes of South Asia over the weekend, officials said Thursday.

Flooding and landslides, triggered by torrential monsoon rains, have swept across India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, leaving devastation in each country.
The northeastern Indian states of Bihar and Assam were hit particularly hard. The death toll has risen to 67 in Bihar and 10 in Assam, with more than 10.3 million people affected in total, according to the states' disaster management authorities.

In Bihar, the rains have eased, allowing the full extent of the damage to become clear. As the floodwaters recede, the bodies of previously undiscovered victims are being recovered, said state officials Thursday.
    The two Indian states have set up more than 900 relief camps and temporary shelters for evacuees and displaced families, who number over 265,000.
    In Nepal, the death toll has reached 88, according to the Home Ministry. There, the worst of the disaster seems to have passed, say aid workers on the ground -- many people are beginning to return to their homes, and the number of people in relief camps has dropped from 17,000 to about 11,000.
