Contest #153 answer: Sukkur, Pakistan

The city of Sukkur was developed in the 12th century, at the island of Bukkhr which lies in the smallest part of the River Indus.


Because of this bottleneck, the area just above Sukkur is very vulnerable to flooding, as can be seen here in a recent (August 18) NASA picture.


We can hardly imagine the scale of this disaster, it is estimated that it affects more than 20 million people.
