Thousands still stranded by floods in India and Pakistan

At the Pakistani floods affect over one million people.

In the District of Jhang, the Pakistani authorities blew up a dam, to try to reduce the effects of floods, allowing the waters disperse for a wider area.

On the Indian side, the floods and land slips caused by torrential rains have left more than a million people without basic services, forcing a massive rescue operation. So far, more than 80 thousand people were rescued by air to isolated villages and roofs of houses in areas completely flooded.

The storm brings to memory the huge floods of 2010, the worst in the history of India, which made 1700 dead.
