Pakistan is undergoing extreme flooding.

This flooding has affected over 30 million people, damaged hundreds of thousands of homes, and killed at least 735,375 livestock.

Since June, heavier-than-average seasonal rains have battered the country.

The Indus River and other waterways are overflowing, with the worst of the flooding concentrated in Pakistan’s southeastern districts.
