More than a million people have been cut off from clean water and thousands of buildings, including hospitals, are submerged in the flood waters and left uninhabitable. Rescue workers struggled to reach marooned flood victims in Kashmir as the catastrophic floodwaters receded, revealing horrific devastation in the strife-torn Kashmir and neighboring Pakistan. The floods in the Himalayan region of Kashmir are believed to be the worst in decades and have left approximately 400,000 people stranded and over 200 dead.
