Pakistan floods kill 260 people

Heavy rains since a few days ago did not go away in the province of Sindh, Pakistan. As a result, the flood had swept the province in the southern Pakistan.

Until Tuesday (09/13/2011), data collected showed a total of 260 people were killed because of the disaster. Most of the victims died because of falling roofs and walls of buildings.

Ironically, this year's flooding was more severe than in 2010. The city of Karachi was paralyzed. Puddles everywhere. Schools and markets closed, while residents who went to work so just leave their vehicles on the roads are flooded. In rural areas many residents who fled into the streets without food.

Disastrous ends even as it reluctantly. You see, as the AP and AFP on Wednesday, storage facilities for refugees minimal amount.

More than five million people were affected by floods that destroyed no less than one million houses. "All we know is 22 of 23 districts are flooded," said Andro Shilakadze, aid workers working for the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF).

"Many people are forced to evacuate even though we do not have exact data. What is clear, not all of them are in the tents shelter," he added.
"Among those refusing to evacuate and are at the roadside in order to monitor and maintain their livestock," said Shilakadze added.
