Asia PhOtOs-South Asia Flooding Kills Hundreds-Many Missing

South Asia:
More than 250 Dead in Flooding across Asia. China, Pakistan, India coping with floods;
-Thailand concerned about flood risks


Southwest China Floods kill 44 -Leaves 18 Missing

By AP, 6 September 2014

Severe flooding from an intense monsoon season has left more than 250 people dead and hundreds more homeless across parts of South Asia and China. Dozens more have been injured or are missing.
Flash Flooding has Killed over 250 people and Injured Nearly 150 others in Recent Days, Authorities said Saturday.


BEIJING (AP) ó Flooding in southwestern China over the past week has left 44 people dead and 18 missing, and has caused massive damage to housing and crops, the Civil Affairs Ministry said Saturday.

Constant heavy rain beginning Aug. 31 has caused widespread destruction in Sichuan and Guizhou provinces, as well as the mega-city of Chongqing, where all but one of the deaths occurred and all of the missing were reported.

The ministry said 121,700 people had been moved to temporary shelters and put the number of collapsed or heavily damaged houses at 42,000. It estimated total damage at more than 3.3 billion yuan ($534 million).

Southwestern China's mountainous terrain increases the chances of landslides brought on by the loosening of rain-saturated hillsides.

Seasonal rains cause major flooding around China almost every year. The worst in recent history was in 1998, when 4,150 people died, most of them along the Yangtze River, China's mightiest.

The massive Three Gorges Dam has largely contained Yangtze flooding, but the problem persists in other parts of the country apart from the arid northwest.

Heavy monsoon rains and flash floods have killed 110 people and injured 148 across Pakistan, while nearly 100 have died in India-administered Kashmir, as officials warn of more rain in coming days.

Ahmad Kamal, a spokesman for Pakistan's National Disaster Management Authority, said on Saturday that at least 61 people had died in the eastern Punjab province since Thursday.
Kamal said another 38 people died in Pakistan-administered Kashmir and 11 had died in northern Gilgit Baltistan province.

"We are dispatching tents and other relief items for those who have been affected because of rains and floods," he said.

Authorities fear the death toll may rise as more flooding and rain is forecast for the coming days.

Pakistan's army has mobilised troops, boats and helicopters to aid in the rescue effort, with operations taking place in Gujranwala, Sialkot,
Rawalpindi, Mandi Bahauddin, Khanki, Qadirabad and parts of Pakistan-administered Kashmir, the military said in a statement.

Al Jazeera's Asad Hashim, reporting from Islamabad, reports

"Pakistan has suffered several years of massive yearly flooding since 2010, which has resulted in millions being displaced every monsoon season. Rescue efforts are currently underway in several areas, but heavy rains are continuing in many of these areas."

Large parts of Lahore, Pakistanís second largest city, are underwater, after the rains overloaded its drainage system.
State-run Pakistan television showed submerged roads and damaged homes across Pakistan and Pakistan-controlled Kashmir.
It said authorities had briefed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday about the floods.

Pakistan's meteorological service said "widespread rain-thundershowers" were expected on Saturday in various parts of the country.

Bodies Recovered

In India-administered Kashmir, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said on Friday that the floods have so far claimed nearly 100 lives, as rivers in the region flow above the danger mark due to incessant rains.
During a rescue operation, rescuers recovered the bodies of at least 50 members of a wedding party aboard a bus that was washed away by flash floods on Thursday.

Farooq Ahmad, a local man, told a reporter on Saturday that the administration had not taken concrete steps to drain the flood water out of residential areas.

"We have been facing many problems. Yesterday, the rain stopped for some time, but today it started again," he said.
"We cannot even go inside, as the water has entered our houses. People, shopkeepers and office goers are facing problems. We are helpless.
"This is being done by God. The administration should also do something about where to release the water."

The state's main river Jhelum and its tributaries are flowing several feet above the danger mark. The river flows into the Pakistani side of the disputed region.
All schools and colleges remain closed and exams postponed.

Rajnath Singh, India's interior minister, held a meeting in New Delhi to review the flood situation and dispatched members of the National Disaster Response Force to assist the state government.
