Thousands were left homeless and many were stranded on the submerged roads in southern Pakistan, as the country was hit by cyclone Phet on Sunday June 06, 2010.

The cyclone caused heavy flooding and rain in the coastal areas, as the storm hit the coasts between Karachi and Thatta. As many as 200,000 people have lost their mud homes from the port city of Gwadar and coastal belt of Thatta District due to heavy floods.
