Floods affect over 1.3 million in Pakistan
Islamabad: More than 1.3 million have been affected by floods triggered by annual monsoon rains in Pakistan, an official disaster control body said today.
The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), in its daily update on floods, said 165 people have died and 855 injured due to floods and rain-related accidents.
"Around 15,000 displaced people are living in 266 camps set by the government," said NDMA in a statement.
It said more than 13,000 houses were fully destroyed while another about 70,000 partially damaged.
Crops over 6,34000 acres have been also destroyed as floods submerged vast swathe of rural agricultural lands in Punjab and Sindh provinces, considered as food basket of the country.
Seasonal rain are slowly coming to end but raging floods in several rivers are still ravaging the country.
