Event: The U.S. Mission to Pakistan informs U.S. citizens that monsoon rains have caused devastating flooding in large areas of Pakistan, particularly the provinces of Balochistan and Sindh. As the rains continue, other areas could be affected.
The U.S. Mission to Pakistan urges U.S. citizens in the affected areas to defer all non-essential travel until the flooding threat has passed. The U.S. Mission also encourages all U.S. citizens in Pakistan to monitor local news channels for announcements on road closures, evacuations, and possible landslides. All U.S. citizens should exercise extreme caution.
U.S. citizens should carry their travel documents at all times (e.g., U.S. passport, birth certificate, picture IDs, etc.) or secure them in a safe, waterproof location. We also suggest that U.S. citizens contact friends and family with updates about their whereabouts.
Actions to Take:
- Follow the above guidance.
- Monitor local media for updates.
- Seek secure shelter.
- Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program(STEP) to receive security alerts and make it easier to locate you in an emergency.
