Record floods devastate Sindh, Baluchistan, hundreds killed, thousands homeless

KARACHI: Hundreds of thousands of people have been directly affected by raging flooding caused by relentless downpours across Pakistan that killed hundreds of people in the last two days.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif Monday directed authorities concerned to expedite the pace of rescue and relief activities in the flood-affected areas and the immediate shifting of the people trapped in flood-hit areas.

Currently, tens of thousands of people are at the mercy of an exceptional monsoon season, which has wreaked havoc across Pakistan aside from inundating large swaths, washing away infrastructures, and triggering landslides.

Hundreds of people have so far lost their lives in the ongoing floods across the country. Due to the catastrophic impact of rainfall in Balochistan, the death toll in the province has reached 225, with at least nine lives lost on Monday.

In Sindh’s Larkana district, more than 200 houses have been ravaged and flooding has claimed the lives of 22 people in the span of three days.
