Scenes from the Devastating Flooding in Pakistan
The deadly rain has hardly stopped for three months in Pakistan.
More than 1,100 people are dead. A million homes have been damaged or destroyed. Even the country’s geography has been altered by floodwaters that have reshaped mountainsides.
And much of Pakistan’s farmland is underwater, meaning the damage from the deluge extends to food prices in a country already struggling with high costs and political instability.
Here are scenes of what is poised to become the worst monsoon season in the nation’s history.
