Floods sweeping across the Bangladesh lands.
What natural disasters are to pop up with this season of change.. Are there gonna be more floods in many continents, maybe typhoons & such in locations where they usually have appeared & also new ones. Floods wrecking the poor country located in southeast asia: Mind blowing to know that more than Five million people in Bangladesh’s northeast are in need of assistance. Lost homes, crops & more in the back to back floods around May to June. Dr. ‘Roxy Mathew’ Koll from Indian Institute of Tropical Meterology said earlier this year that “This increase in short spells of heavy rains causing floods is a clear signal of climate change.” Climate change alone isn’t to blame for worsening floods. In Assam, reporter Aatreyee Dhar spoke to researchers and activists who pointed to the hundreds of embankments that have collapsed. Some residents maintain that politicians pocket bribes from contractors who carry out shoddy work, ensuring these structures are never repaired or maintained properly. 😢
It’s good to know that even sturdy embankments can make flooding worse if they are not properly managed and narrow the river’s channel, reducing its ability to move floodwaters along. “You report that the government-rich people send aid after seeing your own news, but that help does not reach us anymore” ‘an angry resident shouted as the boat drove past.’ Aid packages not reaching people is known to happen in many disaster locations around the globe. With rivers still rising in some parts of Bangladesh & India, the situation continues to worsen for countless communities across both countries. As officials & aid groups try to meet the growing needs, more displacements are occurring amid warnings of the spread of cholera, dysentery & other waterborne illnesses. Not long after or sort of after these, another poor country close to same region has suffered a lot. Here’s a good organisation that has provided help through many years o/ Helping Bangladesh I’ll give my donation on this weekend & second at end of the month. 🤝 No such things when Season of Change was previously greeted. 🐝🌱🐇
Pakistan floods wash away villages & crops, causing thousand plus deaths. Around thirty percent of Pakistan is flooded.
Nearly a half million people crowded into camps after losing their homes in widespread flooding. The climate minister warned that Pakistan is on the “front line” of the world’s climate crisis after unprecedented monsoon rains wrecked the country since mid June this year. During this time close to one & half thousand people have died in flooding. new monsoons are expected for September. Monsoons have hit earlier & more heavily than usual since the start of summer. Pakistan is accustomed to monsoon rains & flooding, but not as one that have come out this year. “What have been witnessed by millions recently in the last eight weeks is unrelenting pours of torrential rain that no monsoon has ever brought with it ever before. The heavy rains are the latest in a series of catastrophes that are exacerbated by climate change. That including heatwaves, forest fires & glacial lake outbursts. The damage reflects how poorer countries often pay the price for climate change caused by big time industrialized nations.
Since -59, Pakistan is responsible for only 0.4% of the world’s historic CO2 emissions. The U.S. is at 21.5%, China’s 16.5% & the EU’s 15%. It’s believed that more than 1 million homes have been destroyed during this time. Around 498,000 people in the country of 220 million are in relief camps after being displaced. Many more people who had to do it are believed to be with relatives, friends or outside. The floods destroyed more than 150 bridges & numerous roads have been washed away, making rescue operations difficult. The rains so far have been the heaviest Pakistan has seen in three decades. Tens of thousands people who had to be displaced cause of this disaster have lost not just homes, but also crops & businesses. At least 6,500 soldiers were deployed to help & authorities said they were using military planes, helicopters, trucks & boats to evacuate people & deliver aid to them. However, many displaced complained they were still waiting for help. Some said they got tents but not food.
The flood wreckage has hit Pakistan at a time when the country faces one of its worst economic crises. Early this week the big suits at International Monetary Fund approved the release of a much-awaited $1.17b for Pakistan. Country’s Information Minister ‘Maryam Aurangez’ told the AP. The announcement was a big relief for the country. Hopefully all that amount is distributed into right accounts & used well. ‘Fears of waterborne diseases as floods recede‘ Many doctors said that they’re now treating people suffering from diarrhea, skin infections & other waterborne ailments in the country’s flood-hit areas. WHO is working with health authorities to respond quickly & effectively on the ground.
Medical staff’s key priorities now are to ensure rapid access to essential health services to the flood-affected population. Also to strengthen disease surveillance, outbreak prevention, control & robust health cluster coordination. Pakistan’s PM ‘Shahbaz Sharif’ promised the rehabilitation of every person displaced by the flood. U.N. Secretary-General ‘Antonio Guterres’ urged the Earthlings (and possible Aliens) living on Planet Tellus by saying: “Let’s stop sleepwalking toward the destruction of our planet by climate change that is real.” Same charity organisation mentioned above at end of second paragraph: Helping Pakistan. I’ll do the same assist here as mentioned above ^^ 🤝

Here in Northern Hemisphere’s country where i live at the moment, the outdoor temperatures seem to drop fast like a heavy object falling down to planet’s surface. Daytime & Evening temperatures seem to end up being ten or close lower than just days ago on this last week of august 6022. Here’s a image that includes today’s 31.8.6022 21:00, Thorsday, Friday & Saturday. Yesterday evening at 19:30 when i went for a walk, outdoor temperature was +11c. It sure was an ‘experience‘ when i had t shirt, leisure pants, summer shoes without socks as i never wear socks during summer. Warm Peppermint Tea cuppa & toast with veg pesto & rainbow brand’s veg cheese was welcome for the belly once back at home 🍵🍞🥗🧀😊 This huge drop down to +11c so fast isn’t part of extreme weather conditions, but i mentioned it because it’s a big change in short-time period. Let me know if your current area of residence have had extreme weather changes in recent times when comparing to past decade or two. 🤔 I wish enjoyable season change to everyone
