Heavy monsoon rains, the rapid melting of snow and outbursts from glacial lakes have led to flash floods and the flooding of the Indus River in various locations across Pakistan. The floods have affected 23 Districts across Pakistan with 55 reported fatalities and 14 people injured. Chitral District in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and six Districts of Punjab province have been hit the hardest, with a high risk of floods in Sindh province in coming days. The Pakistan Army and Government authorities are providing immediate response. OCHA is in contact with national and provincial disaster management authorities, and continues to monitor the situation. NDMA continues to monitor the situation, and issue early warnings/alerts on weather and flood advisories to relevant disaster management authorities.
