Current Facts

  • The flood is “Pakistan’s worst natural disaster” since the country’s creation 63 years ago.

  • 14 million affected (about 8 percent of the population), in terms of the number of people who have lost their homes or livelihoods, and will need short or long-term help.

  • 1,600 dead.

  • Over 300,000 homes destroyed.

  • 10,000 + square kilometers (4,000 square miles) of Pakistan under water.

Comparative Damage

More people are suffering from the massive floods in Pakistan than the combined total of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake, according to the United Nations.

"The number of people affected by the floods is greater than the other three disasters combined,"Maurizio Giuliano, spokesman for the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

The United Nations said in terms of the number of people who have lost their homes or livelihoods, and will need short- or long-term help, the floods were worse than the 2004 tsunami, which killed 236,000 people around the Indian Ocean.

Human Devastation

  • Pakistani flood survivors already short on food and water began the fasting month of Ramadan on Thursday, a normally festive, social time marked this year by misery and fears of an uncertain future.

  • Damage to crops, roads and bridges has caused food prices to triple in some parts of the country, adding to the pain of those marking the fasting month.

Damage to Landand Commerce

  • Pakistan’s deadliest floods in its history damaged more than a million acres of sugar cane, cotton and rice fields and caused 250 billion rupees ($2.9 billion) of agricultural losses, a farmers’ group said.

  • U.S. concerns are growing over the disaster's impact on Pakistan's fragile economy and how Washington's robust development plan may be slowed down to deal with the crisis. Pakistan's economy will need huge injections of foreign aid.

Relief Efforts

  • U.S. military helicopters supporting relief and rescue operations in partnership with the Pakistani militaryso far have rescued approximately 916 people and transported 89,000 pounds of relief supplies.

  • The Lahore-based American Business Forum has collected donations from: Coca-Cola, Levi Strauss Pakistan, General Electric, Monsanto, Abbott Labs and Proctor and Gamble among others.

  • Britain, France, China, the US, and Australia have already promised tens of millions of dollars in response to the disaster.

Residual Damage

  • The floods hit the country at a time when the government is already struggling with a faltering economy and a war against Taliban militants that has killed thousands of people.

  • The floodwaters first struck the western province of Baluchistan on July 22 before inundating the Khyber Pakhtunkwa province. Punjab and Sindh were the next hit. Thunderstorms are expected to bring more rain to the north of Pakistan in the next 24 hours.
