Floods in Pakistan – India offers help

News: India will be extending humanitarian assistance to Pakistan to deal with the Devastating Flood that occurred because of Pakistan’s Monster Monsoon. The climate crisis is the prime reason for the devastating scale of flooding in Pakistan, which has killed more than 1,000 people and affected 30 million.

Reasons behind severe Floods:
• The current flood is a direct result of an extremely wet monsoon season this year. The same southwest monsoon that brings the bulk of India’s annual rainfall causes rain in Pakistan as well. There’s been a 400% increase in average rainfall in areas like Baluchistan and Sindh, which led to extreme flooding.
• In May 2022, Pakistan consistently saw temperatures above 45 degrees Celsius (113 Fahrenheit). Warmer air holds more moisture about 7% more per degree Celsius and that eventually comes down, in this case in torrents.
• Instead of just swollen rivers flooding from extra rain, Pakistan is hit with another source of flash flooding.
• The extreme heat accelerates the long-term glacier melting and then water speeds down from the Himalayas to Pakistan in a dangerous phenomenon called glacial lake outburst floods.
• The El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) appears to be in its La Niña phase. “La Niña is behaving very strongly in some metrics and is a significant factor for enhancing monsoonal rains.

India’s assistance:
• The aid will be the first time since 2014 that India will be extending aid to Pakistan on account of a natural disaster. In the past, India extended assistance to Pakistan for the floods in 2010, and for the earthquake in 2005.
