The death toll from the devastating floods in Pakistan has risen to nearly 1,400.

In the last 24 hours, 36 people, including 15 children, have lost their lives, the country’s authorities said on Friday. News from Anadolu.

Climate change is being blamed for Pakistan’s worst floods this year, which have displaced millions and caused an estimated $1 trillion in damage.

Residents in several parts of Pakistan have resorted to building temporary dams to prevent floodwaters from entering localities that have submerged a third of the country after weeks of continuous rain.

At least 300 million of the country’s 220 million inhabitants have been affected by this flood.

Locals are working to strengthen the embankment of Bhan Syedabad city in the southern province of Sindh, which is at risk of inundation by floodwaters.

There is also a fear of overflowing Manchar, Pakistan’s largest fresh water lake, which is located some distance away and inundating large areas around it.

Record rainfall and huge amounts of water from melting glaciers in the northern mountains have led to this unprecedented flood.

Pakistan received 391 mm of rain in July and August alone. More than 6.4 million people in the flood-affected areas are in need of humanitarian assistance, the United Nations said, and they have asked for $160 million in aid for Pakistan.
