Death toll mounts 1000
According to data issued on Sunday by Pakistan’s National Disaster Management Authority, the number of people who have died as a result of monsoon flooding since June has risen to 1,033.
According to the report, 119 people had died in the preceding 24 hours as the nation’s severe rains continued in some areas.
The Indian subcontinent’s yearly monsoon is necessary for irrigating crops and replenishing lakes and dams, but it also brings a wave of destruction each year.
