Pakistan Floods

I've been feeling bad for the recent stories coming from Pakistan about the worst flooding the country has ever seen.

The latest crisis has affected about 20 million people. Relentless monsoon rains started falling three weeks ago, leading to massive flooding from the mountainous regions in the north to the river plains of the south.
More than 1,500 people have died.
Health officials fear a second wave of fatalities from waterborne diseases, including cholera, which is endemic in Pakistan.
Up to 3.5 million children are at high risk of cholera and other deadly diseases such as typhoid and dysentery, said Giuliano of the United Nations. -From CNN
