Monsoon rains and ensuing floods have killed 422 people and injury a few thousand more in Pakistan, a disaster spokesperson said Saturday.
CNN reported 350,000 people have been forced from their homes and upwards of 4 million have been affected by flooding in some way, shape or form since Aug. 22.
A report on India's Zee News website said Pakistan is affected by Monsoon's every year.
Zee News also reported that UNICEF called for upwards of $15 million for protection of those affected by the devastating floods.
Though this story is taking place thousands of miles away from home, its important in the sense that natural disasters can affect anybody. So many people have died or have been tragically affected by these floods. The United States has had similar problems with hurricanes in recent years. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
