Monsoon rains have claimed the lives of at least 236 people across Pakistan and India, and the situation could only get worse with more rain forecasted for the coming days. The heavy rain has sparked flooding, landslides and roof collapses across both countries, creating dangerous conditions in the Indian controlled area of Kashmir and far eastern Pakistan.
Dozens of bridges have been damaged or destroyed, more than 4,000 homes across the country collapsed partially or completely, rendering thousands homeless. Homes in Pakistani villages are often built with mud bricks and without concrete foundations, making them vulnerable to collapse under heavy rains.
In India, authorities put the death toll at 108 people, including some 30 people killed when a bus filled with a wedding party washed away in a flooded stream. Four passengers managed to swim away, but others remain unaccounted for.
