Pakistan devastated by floods

The flood in pakistan are now worse than Haiti's January 2010 earthquake, the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, and the 2005 Kashmir earthquake combined, the United Nations' Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs announced on Monday. The floods have killed 1,600, displaced 1 million from their homes, and affected 15 million in all. The latter number includes many who, because they have lost access to food and clean drinking water, may be at serious risk of starvation or such water-borne diseases as cholera. Here are the effects of this ongoing humanitarian disaster.
