As reported by AP, United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon this is the worst flood disaster he’s ever seen.  Ban urged the international community to send more relief funds; the country now has just $93 million of the estimated $460 million needed to provide flood relief.

 

1,500 are reported dead, 2 million homeless. Reportedly one-fifth of the country of Pakistan is underwater.  20 million people are affected, 6 million of whom need and have yet to receive aid.

 

There is one ski resort in Pakistan, Malam Jabba, which is currently being re-built, after being set on fire by militants in 2008.
