Severe flash floods killed at least two people and damaged or destroyed more than 60 buildings in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, on July 13, 2020.

A glacial lake outburst triggered flash floods in the Golen Valley of Lower Chitral District, washing away roads, destroying homes and affecting power and water infrastructure affected.

According to the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, two houses were destroyed and eight were damaged, while six other buildings– including shops and mosques– were also damaged.

Damage to bridges and roads in the area left residents of more than 500 homes stranded.

PDMA reported two fatalities and 44 homes damaged in South Waziristan after heavy rains caused flash floods.
