Flood in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

Daily Sitrep - 02

2nd August 2010



Flood Situation


The heavy floods in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa caused loss of 1,100 lives, hundreds of injuries and incalculable damage to properties. According to the Provincial Government, the districts of Charsadda and Nowshera are widely believed to be the worst hit. The flood is the believed to be worst in recent history of Pakistan.  Actual extent of damage is yet unknown but it is certain that the number of deaths and extent of damage will rise as additional information is becoming available. According to the government sources, more than 1.5 million people have been affected by the floods and landslides. Aerial surveys show that the situation is far from comprehension.  The government’s priority is mainly four areas at the emergency stage; food aid, clean water, emergency shelter and medical supplies.


In addition to telecommunications, main roads have been rendered impassable by deep water cutting off most of the areas and preventing rescue and relief to reach the affected people.


UNHCR’s Immediate Response


0n 30th July, 1500 tents were distributed among 1500 vulnerable families through the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA). On 1st July, 1,000 tents were delivered to Nowshera district Relief Commissioner for distribution. Further delivery of 3000 tents to Nowshera district in underway. UNHCR engaged its partner Sarhad Rural Support Programme (SRSP) to undertake transportation and distribution of humanitarian goods. In addition, 500 tents and 2000 UNHCR non food item kits (NFIs) were handed over to Ministry of Social Welfare for flood affected people in Charsadda, Peshawar and Pabbi areas. This brings the total tents distributed so far to 10,000 pieces (6000 for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and 4000 for Balochistan).


Preliminary assessments indicate that an additional 10,000 families would require tents and non-food items. There is high expectation from UNHCR to continue providing emergency assistance to flood affected-population until the situation has been stabilized. 


UNHCR is an active member of the Provincial Task Force headed by PDMA. The Task Force meets on a daily basis to review progress and discuss on plans.


Afghan Refugee Villages affected by flood 


A rapid assessment was undertaken by UNHCR field staff to identify the immediate needs of Afghan refugee villages affected by the floods. Among main refugee villages impacted include Azakheil, Khurasan , Khazana, Hajizai and Kababian.  Some Afghan 2000 families have been affected and, like their host community, they will also be assisted with UNHCR’s emergency response package.


UNHCR ware houses


UNHCR’s main warehouse’s wall in Azakheil, Nowshera District was washed away at two points ranging from 50 to 60 feet each. The assessment of the damaged items is now being carried out.  The boundary wall of Azakheil II warehouse was completely demolished and the flood water spread the shelter material over the radius of 2 km which also resulted in blockage of Grand trunk Road between Islamabad and Peshawar.  There were initial reports of looting of these items but with the timely intervention of local police, it was stopped. With the assistance of local community, some material has been collected from the roadside. Pabbi warehouse is still submerged in water and was therefore inaccessible.


World Food Programme reported of loss of 56 metric toms of food stored in Pabbi warehouse due to flood.
