巴基斯坦雨季洪灾致300多人丧生 Monsoon Floods Kill More Than 300 in Pakistan

30 July, 2010

巴基斯坦官员说,雨季大雨造成的洪水已在过去3天里夺走至少300人的生命。

当局说,大多数死亡事件发生在西北部的开伯尔.普什图省的科希斯坦地区。当地政府官员已经宣布进入紧急状态。

洪水冲毁了该省数百座房屋、桥梁和道路,其中包括白沙瓦、斯瓦特山谷和查沙达地区。

巴基斯坦西北部地区正经历着近100年来最严重的洪灾,至少40万人被困。

洪灾局势的恶化使得巴基斯坦军方出动更多部队处于高度戒备,官员说,暴雨阻碍了直升机前往受灾区的能力。

巴基斯坦管辖的克什米尔地区官员说,至少22人在星期四遇难。

Officials say floods caused by monsoon rains have killed more than 300 people in Pakistan over the last three days.

Authorities say most of the deaths are in northwestern Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, where regional government officials have declared a state of emergency. 

Hundreds of homes, bridges and roadways have been destroyed in the province, including the areas of Peshawar, Swat Valley and the Charsadda district. 

At least 400,000 people have been stranded in villages, in the worst flooding to hit the northwestern region in nearly 100 years.

Pakistani military officials have put more army troops on high alert as a result of the worsening floods. Authorities say the heavy rains have impeded the ability to reach affected areas by helicopter.

In Pakistani-controlled Kashmir, officials say at least 22 people were killed on Thursday.
