Situation Overview


The deadliest weather related disaster of 2010 was in Pakistan and resulted from heavy monsoon rains which lasted from late July until the end of August.  The heavy rains caused the Indus river to overflow and flood much of the country, leaving thousands dead, destroying millions of homes in thousands of villages and towns.  Also the floods severely damaged or destroyed infrastructure such as dams, power stations, roads, bridges, schools, agriculture wells, and drinking water hand pumps.  According to  reports, over 20 Million people have been affected by this disaster - more than the 2004 Indonesia Tsunami, 2005 Pakistan Earthquake, and 2010 Haiti Earthquake combined.
