The torrential rain, which caused a foothill to collapse, destroyed more than 100 houses in Bahrabise.
"We fear more landslides as the soil has grown weaker after the earthquake," said Nimphunjo Sherpa, mayor of the affected Bahrabise municipality.
Two others died in a landslide in Baglung in the northwest.
Both landslides struck the villages before dawn and people could not escape to safety, rescuers said.
"Rescuers are looking for those who are missing," Wasti told Reuters news agency. ■
