Floods In Pakistan-Province by Province.UPDATE.
Khyber- Pakhtunkhawa province has suffered enormously in these floods. as there were more rains their relief activities had to be intermittent. The provincial government has now diverted its development funds towards relief. There has been massive damage to house, residential abodes, some 7 lakhs according to a rough estimate as told in a press briefing by minister Qamaruzaman Kaira. All these will have to be built. There has been massive destruction of roads, bridges and a power plant. These will have to be built quickly.
As large number of crops are destroyed there will be massive food shortages, especially fruit and vegetables in the very near future all over the country. The WFP says it has food for 60 lakh people for a month only after which they will be needing more food aid.
