Pakistan Floods

Unusually heavy and concentrated monsoon rains have led to flooding in various regions of Pakistan, affecting over 17 million people. Here are a couple of information sources beyond the usual news providers.

  • Pakreport.org produces a crisis map based on reports from flood-affected areas that are verified, collated, and mapped. This information is then used to help coordinate relief activities.

  • USAID is maintaining a web page with fact sheets, maps, and information on humanitarian assistance: USAID Pakistan Disaster Assistance
