Pakistani navy boats have navigated their way through flooded waters to rescue people stranded by the country's worst floods in 8 decades.

Rubber and wood navy boats were used to help people in Sindh Province, where flood waters burst from the Indus River across a vast swath of territory.

Officers say all women and children have been rescued, while some men remain behind to tend to the safety of their livestock.

In Punjab, hundreds of individuals were evacuated from drenched areas to higher grounds. More heavy rains are expected in the next 36 hours. Foreign aid organizations say bad weather has hampered relief efforts.
