Pakistan still flooded two months later

New satellite images from NASA show the extraordinary scope of the continuing disaster in Pakistan, where thousands of square miles of land remain submerged two months after the country was hit by catastrophic flooding. The area still submerged is the size of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island combined and 1 million people are still homeless. 

A satellite image captured last week shows floodwaters lingering in Sindh Province and Manchhar Lake at twice its normal size.
