loss of life or property damage,and
typically leaves some economic damage in
its wake, the severity of which depends on

In June 2013, a multi-day cloudburst centered on
the North Indian state of Uttarakhand caused
devastating floods and landslides becoming the
country's worst natural disaster since the 2004
tsunami.The reason the floods were on such a
larger scale than the regular floods the state
usually received was because of the debris of the
building of dams upstream. The debris blocked
up the rivers causing major overflow. The main
day of flood is said to be on 16 June 2013.

According to Tharparkar district authorities, 99
children and 67 adults (43 men and 24 women)
have reportedly died in Tharparkar since the

malnutrition, a lack of access to effective health
facilities, lower than average rainfall in Chachro,
Diplo, Khinser, Islamkot, Mithi tehsils (sub-
