Video: “a disaster of epic proportions”

More than a week on, it’s still difficult to comprehend the sheer scale of the disaster in Pakistan.

The UN has said that “the number of people suffering from the massive floods in Pakistan could exceed the combined total in three recent megadisasters – the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake.”


This video below gives a glimpse into the devastation caused by the floods. We made this video on Friday. At that point, it was reported that four million people had been affected by the floods. Just one day later, that figure had tripled – going up to 12 million people affected. Now, the figure stands at almost 14 million.
