Record Flooding in Pakistan Kills At Least 13, Submerges Much of Karachi

HeadlineAug 31, 2020

In Pakistan, torrential rains have killed at least 13 people and submerged large swaths of Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city. This comes in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak. The record-breaking rains this month are 10 times the monthly average and the worst since record-keeping began some 90 years ago. Last week, over eight inches of rain fell in a period of just 12 hours.
