Global News published this video item, entitled “Pakistan floods: Drone footage captures submerged city as rains leave at least 900 dead” – below is their description.
Torrential rains in Pakistan have left at least 900 people dead, cities under water, a hotel collapsed and a bridge washed away in what the country’s climate change minister Sherry Rehman is calling a “climate-induced humanitarian disaster of epic proportions.”
A large portion of the damage is in the country’s Sindh province, where drone footage captured the flooded streets and homes of Hyderabad, the region’s second largest city. Twenty-three districts of Sindh have been declared calamity hit.
In southwestern Balochistan, a major railway bridge was washed away in the Bolan Pass, cutting off the city of Quetta from the rest of the country. In Pakistan’s Swat Valley, people also watched in shock as the New Honeymoon hotel was washed away, though no casualties were reported.
Officials say approximately 30 million people have been impacted by the historic monsoon rains and flooding.Global News YouTube Channel
