CNN is reporting that the recent flooding in Pakistan has left 1/5th of the country under water.

With about one-fifth of the country underwater, almost 900,000 homes have been damaged, the agency said.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Sunday that while he has visited sites of natural disasters around the world, he has never seen anything like the devastation created by flooding in Pakistan. He said the disaster is worse than the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the 2005 Pakistani earthquake combined.
