First Posted: 08/04/10 05:13 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 06:15 PM ET

Days of heavy monsoonal rains have caused floods devastating northwestern Pakistan.

The disaster has claimed more than 1,100 lives and it has been dubbed the worst flooding in living memory for Pakistan.

The flooding has overwhelmed the Pakistani government's capacity to provide aid, Bloomberg reports.

In May, the government warned of flood damage for that part of Pakistan, stating 50,000 people were at risk after a landslide created a lake.

There are many ways you can help the victims of the Pakistan flood, and HuffPost Impact has rounded those up here.

Pakistan flood photos are providing context to the tragedy. View dramatic images from the flood and its impact below.
