New satellite images reveal largest Pakistani lake overflowing

After weeks of extreme monsoon rains, Pakistan’s largest freshwater lake started overflowing in early September, putting tens of thousands of people at risk of losing their homes, new satellite images reveal. 

The images, captured by NASA’s Landsat 8 and Landsat 9 satellites, show breaches in the banks of Lake Manchar, some of which have been made intentionally by local authorities to prevent the overfilled lake from spilling into densely populated areas in the Indus River Valley.
