Theviraltime | No Filipinos reported hurt after severe flooding in Pakistan — Philippine Embassy │ GMA News Online #Showbiz


No Filipinos were reported affected following the severe torrential rain and flooding in Pakistan, according to the Philippine Embassy in Islamabad.

Maria Agnes Cervantes, Charge d’Affaires of the Philippine Embassy in Islamabad, said they are continuously monitoring the situation and coordinating with the Filipino community in Pakistan.

“As of today, no Filipinos are reported to be harmed or affected by the torrential rain and flooding in Pakistan. The unprecedented amount of rain in the past weeks caused the death of more than a thousand persons in the Baluchistan and Sindh provinces,” Cervantes said in a statement released on Wednesday evening.

“The Philippine Embassy in Islamabad is in touch with the Filipino leaders and the Filipino community in Pakistan. The Department continuously monitors the situation and is ready to assist Filipinos in distress,” she added.

Unprecedented flash floods caused by historic monsoon rains have washed away roads, crops, infrastructure and bridges, killing at least 1,000 people in recent weeks and affecting more than 33 million residents in Pakistan, according to a report from Reuters.

Meanwhile, early estimates put the damage from Pakistan’s deadly floods at more than $10 billion, its planning minister said on Monday, adding that the world has an obligation to help the South Asian nation cope with the effects of man-made climate change.

Southern Sindh and southwestern Balochistan provinces have been hit the hardest by the floods that swept through farmland and towns, with large parts of both and northern Pakistan districts cut off for many days from the rest of the country. — Richa Noriega/RSJ, GMA News
