1. This is the worst flooding in Pakistan’s recent history.

Since June, the heaviest rainfall in living memory and melting glaciers in northern Pakistan led to catastrophic flooding that has killed more than 1,200 people and affected 33 million—more than the population of Texas or Australia.

2. One-third of Pakistan is underwater.

Pakistan’s climate change minister Sherry Rehman described the unprecedented monsoon rains and flooding as a “climate catastrophe.” In the hard-hit Sindh and Balochistan provinces, rainfall has been 500% above average. The resulting flooding has inundated communities and farmland and wiped out buildings and crops. Nearly half a million people are staying in temporary shelters.
