Catastrophic floods in Pakistan this year have submerged a third of the country, washing away everything that came in its way including houses, schools, hospitals, powerhouses and people.
According to the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), record monsoon rains and melting glaciers in northern mountains brought floods that have killed at least 1,265 people since June 14, with 57 casualties reported during the last 24 hours. The total number of people who have suffered injuries stands at 12,577.
Several districts of Sindh and Southern Punjab are completely inundated with water everywhere in sight.
Here are some satellite pictures that show the landscape before and after the floods.
