Pakistan's flooding is beyond devastating. It is estimated that about half of the country has been inundated and anywhere between eight and sixteen million people have been severely affected. About one million homes have been damaged and the loss of life is estimated at anywhere from 1,300 to 1,600 lives. The United Nations, Red Cross, and other international organizations are responding but aid is not moving into the area rapidly enough for the millions affected. The New York Times writes about how the flood might make Pakistan unstable and liable to fail as a state. Relief Web has a frequently updated page with maps, data, and reports on Pakistan's flooding.
