The power of the flood

These kinds of images are common in village Pirno, UC Utmanzai, showing the aftermath of the flood.
The most destructive flood in the last 80 years that brought massive devastation to all aspects of life.

A group photo with local committee for flood affected people. Majority of the people of Utmanzai are educated, very cooperative .they provided all the necessary information and guided us throughout our visit.
This picture was taken during our first visit of UC Utmanzai, village Gharai Charsadda on 21st September.
The destruction level can be seen in this photo as the flood water rushed inside the houses, touching the roof tops. We hardly observed any house unaffected in the whole village.  People have started to gather debris of their damaged or collapsed houses for possible rehabilitation.
