See Ore's report on the floods

Heavy rain has caused the worst floods in Pakistan for more than 80 years.

The hardest hit area has been Peshawar in the north-east of the country where more than 300 people have died.

Rescuers are working flat out to try to reach the survivors. Some villages have been completely washed away. Others have been covered by landslides.

In just two days nearly 400,000 people have had to leave their homes. The Pakistani army has sent soldiers to help rescue people.
