Thousands of villages submerged under floodwater

The flooding in Jammu and Kashmir has been declared a “national-level disaster” by the Indian Prime Minister.

Severe flooding and landslides caused by extreme monsoon rains have submerged large swathes of India and Pakistan, killing hundreds of people, injuring hundreds more, and leaving hundreds of thousands of others marooned .

More than 15 million people have been affected, as deadly floods and landslides destroy thousands of homes in both Indian-administered Kashmir, Jammu, states of Orissa and Andhra Pradesh, as well as in Pakistani-administered Kashmir and Punjab.

More than a thousand bridges and hundreds of kilometers of roads lay in ruins. Hundreds of thousands of hectares of crops have also been destroyed across the two countries.
