Millions are affected as the decade's worst disaster hits Pakistan

The rainfall received nationwide is 2.87 times higher than the national 30-year average, with some provinces experiencing more than five times as much rainfall as their 30-year average. The climate minister, Sherry Rehman, said the country was going through its eighth monsoon cycle “while normally the country only has three to four cycles of rain”. (source)

It is estimated that 33 million people have been affected, and more than 1,340 lives have been lost.
