Map of the Day: Pakistan Floods

Flooding in southern Pakistan over the past month has inflicted a huge humanitarian and economic toll. Close to 5 million people are affected and traditional donors are pretty much staying away.

The image below is from the UN’s Satellite division of flooding in the city of Mirpur Khas, Sindh Province.


To put this in perspective, Mirpur Khas has a population of nearly 450,000, which is about 100,000 more than the city of New Orleans.
