GENERAL INFORMATION ON FLOOD


A severe weather formation was formed in the parts of China-Himalaya range and over Pakistan causing heavy rains which started from Khaybar Pakhtunkhua province. The flush rain water created heavy floods which swept many parts of the province and later entered into Punjab-Baluchsitan & Sindh, the continued severe rains on the parts of AKJ-Punjab-Baluchistan and Sindh created the biggest calamity in recent history of the world leaving 24million peoples homeless and displaced. Communication structure was damaged all over the country, businesses, livestock’s, agriculture land and crops destroyed. Preliminary estimates forecast losses between USD 15billion to 25 billion (External economic source).

Primary relief work was severely affected due to no-prediction and pre-management from the concern authorities. International agencies along with government agencies and local NGO’s are still doing their best to handle this huge relief & rehabilitation programme. Despite of funding problems NGO’s are doing their best part to handle the disaster in their best capacity.

The recent floods in Pakistan are being termed as a slow motion catastrophe – and far from over. The sheer scale of disaster defies comprehension because a flood, unlike a tsunami and an earthquake that swipe away lives in an instant, builds slowly over time. Around the country, an estimated 17 to 20 million people have been affected. That’s more than the entire population hit by the Indian Ocean tsunami and Kashmir earthquake in 2005, the 2007 Cyclone Nargis and this year’s earthquake in Haiti — combined.
The widespread devastation caused by high floods in Pakistan in a matter of less than a month presents horrid pictures of people, livestock and property being swept away by the surging waves fed by heavy downpour. Entire villages have been wiped out and infrastructure severely damaged in different parts of the country. It is literally a battle against time to save lives as well as plan for rehabilitation of the affected population. No doubt the Floods are being referred to as an ‘exceptional’ disaster, thereby warranting an exceptional response.
The death toll has now reached 1,677 with 2,605 people confirmed as injured in all over the country. Over 1.2 million houses have either been damaged or destroyed2. In a disaster of such a magnitude, humanitarian actors need to come together and build on the partnerships that have evolved over the years to respond effectively and support the government and affected communities.(UNDP)
