Pakistan flood: One-third of the country under water

Islamabad: The recent flood has put a third of Pakistan under water. The record-level monsoon rains have created a crisis of unimaginable proportions, said Climate Change Minister Sherry Rehman.

She added that the flood has affected 33 million people and there is no dry land to pump the water out. "It's all one big ocean."

Heavy rain is still going on in at least 110 districts. The death toll had risen by over 1,000 on Sunday. Official figures released by National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) said 1,033 people including 348 children are dead and 1,527 are injured.

A total of 72 districts have been declared to be calamity hit. 949,858 houses have been ruined in overflows, out of which 287,412 have been entirely damaged while 662,446 homes have been partially destroyed. Over 700,000 livestock have died in flood-related incidents.

Pak's Flood Forecasting Division (FFD) issued a warning on Saturday saying very high and above-level flooding is expected to continue in River Kabul. River Indus at Kalabagh and Chashma are also at high risk of flood.
