Overflowing Indus River submerges houses in Pakistan

STORY: Drone footage from Reuters shows water from a swollen Indus River covering nearby banks and homes.

In Pakistan, as many as 33 million people have been affected, with at least 1,325 dead, including 466 children.

The floods were brought about by record monsoon rains and melting glaciers in northern mountains, national disaster officials have said. It followed record-breaking summer heat, with the government and the United Nations both having blamed climate change for the extreme weather and the resulting devastation.
