Kabul River was the main cause of the flood. The Nowshera district in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa
province is the worst flood-affected area in the country. But the concerned
local administration is ill-equipped to cope with this drastic situation. There
is massive scale destruction in this area, one couldn’t imagine. There is a
destroyed infrastructure and flooded houses. Several people have homeless. Most
of the people came out in a single cloth. They have left everything in the
rubble of their houses. Like other parts of this area the cantonment area was
also affected by the flooded water, an area like Armor corps headquarters,
military offices army mess, and other offices in the area. The official
residences are also submerged in the deep water. All the flood-affected people
of that area and surrounding have been shifted to the ASC colony, Armor colony.

local administration said that the lack of resources was the basic and main
obstacle to deal with the flood in this area. The concerned authorities
stressed that the most urgent and essential needs of the flood-affected people
are tents, food commodities, clean drinking water, milk for children, and non-food
items. Most of the displaced people have been taken shelter with relatives and
friends in the safe area of the ASC colony and Armor colony. Many people have
been accommodated in government schools. The local people in these colonies
have also provided shelter and other life requirements to these flood-affected
people based on human rights. This is an excellent example to help these
affected people.


local government administrations along with other welfare organizations have
established camps in the safe area. The flood-affected people asked the
government to provide the basic needs but the administrative authorities are
absent. In these camps, there is a doctor with a large number of medicines
providing medical care to the patient. Most of the necessary work has done by
the Army men with the help of helicopters and boats. The government authorities
and elected government representatives were critically criticized by the flood-affected
people of that area and other parts of the province. Huge property and
expensive lives have been lost in this massive flood. The properties cost is in
the billion.


of the countries and UN agencies have provided basic requirements to these
people. A roughly estimated death figure is 1500 to 2000. an official death
figure is 777. Besides these homes all their belongings and their loved ones
having been washed away in this devastating flood. The floodwater was 300
thousand cusecs, and now the huge flood water is passing in the Sindh province
which is about one-million cusecs. Now the relief working is going to continue.
A lot of animals like buffalo, cows, and goats have died in this flood. Now
there is a very dirty smell in the area which is also disturbing the people.


contagious disease is now spreading in the area like cholera and 3 people have
been died because of this disease. The communication system was severely
affected and electricity remained suspended. Roads and bridges have been
destroyed by the floodwater so relief work is difficult. Camps have been
established on the roadside of the motorway. Some people are living under the open
sky. But instead of all these measures, the government must take a serious and
concrete step in this regard. They must provide life requirements to these
flood-affected people.


than 7.5 million people have been displaced since the flood day.I.8 million
agriculture lands have been destroyed. More than 1600 people have been died
because of the severe flood. Ten million homes have been destroyed for the last
month. For complete rehabilitation, the government needs 43 billion dollars.
And it will take about 3 years for complete development and rehabilitation.
