More than 200 people have died, 200,000 left homeless and million of acres of agricultural land have been inundated, as heavy flooding spreads across Pakistan's Sindh province.

While more than 800,000 families remain without permanent shelter since the flood last year, a new crisis is developing as monsoon rains sweep through the southern province of Sindh.

In Karachi, the capital of Sindh, many streets are impassable, cars are stuck and several fuel stations are inundated, with more rain forecast through Wednesday, raising the possibility of extended disruptions.

Obviously, the government is unprepared for such a disaster.

Bibi Mero, flood victim, said, "We are not receiving any relief goods, not even a single five kilogram bag of flour. Now the government is telling us that we should evacuate from here as our houses have been inundated with floodwater. What can we do?"

Four-point-two million acres of agricultural land has also been inundated, authorities said, devastating millions of US dollars worth of crops.
