. More than a thousand people lost their lives. Millions lost their homes. The country is witnessing the worst natural disaster in decades. Floods have affected nearly three and a half million people in Pakistan, which is 15 percent of the population. This is the worst flood in the history of the country. Pakistani Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif announced that the death toll has exceeded 1,100. Apart from the loss of life, large buildings have also been damaged.

The flash flood occurred during the heavy rains that have been falling non-stop since June. All the rivers are overflowing. About 220,000 houses were destroyed. More people were on the highway. Hundreds of bridges, roads and buildings were washed away. Pakistan Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal said that according to the current assessment, there is a loss of 10 billion dollars. The real loss will be known only after the flood waters recede. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit Baltistan, Sindh and Balochistan have been severely affected by the floods. Federal Minister of Pakistan Sherry Rahman says that the current situation is similar to the great flood in 2010 that claimed 2000 lives.

As the rivers overflowed, many places were submerged. Due to the formation of mud puddles, the inability of helicopters to land has hampered the relief efforts. Damage to bridges and roads also adds to the concern. It is reported that around two million acres of farmlands have been destroyed. 33 million people of the country are facing floods. The number of houses destroyed is yet to be ascertained. Official sources also inform that the death toll is likely to rise further. In the press meet, the prime minister also informed that the damage to the infrastructure due to the flood is very large. At the same time, Pakistan’s financial sector has also been affected by the floods. Figures indicate that there have already been losses of at least 79000 crores. The administration is trying to raise funds for relief and rehabilitation activities.
