Floodwaters Threaten Pakistan’s Sindh Province with Large-Scale Devastation

Having caused  major catastrophes in Punjab and Kashmir, rising floodwaters could caused  large-scale devastations in Pakistan’s Sindh Province.

In Punjab province alone flooding affected more than 2.2 million people, killing at least 209 and leaving 4,286 others injured, said the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).

Some 2,853 villages were severely inundated and 32,243 houses were damaged or destroyed, NDMA reported.

Authorities rescued 41,115 persons, while 200,000 people were displaced.

Kashmir Mega Catastrophe

Meanwhile at least 75,000 people are still awaiting evacuation in partly submerged homes in Srinagar, Kashmir’s capital city, “where roads have been transformed into stagnant canals strewn with sewage, wreckage and dead livestock,” reported Reuters.

“Floating carcasses have become a big source of worry with most houses still waterlogged. We are struggling to get in touch with government health officials,” said a concerned hotelier in Kashmir.

People are worried that hectares of stagnant water covering the city would increase the risk of waterborne diseases spreading.

“The stench of rotting carcasses of cattle was almost unbearable for people in some parts of Srinagar, a city of more than a million people,” said the report.

Flooding and landslides have claimed hundreds of lives left tens of thousands homeless in Indian-administered Kashmir, where the cost of flood damage could top several billion dollars.
