Context

The flooding continues to affect more areas in the country. In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province (KPK), new rains resulted in return of high water levels to the previously flooded places and created new flooded areas forcing more people to evacuate. Floods from Indus River extended to the South of the country cutting communication to various parts of Punjab and Sindh. According to the authorities, the number of people affected by Pakistan's floods is now estimated to be over 15 million, making it the worst catastrophe this century.
