The state of Jammu & Kashmir was largely submerged after monsoons flooded the area earlier this month. The controversial state is split between India and Pakistan. Since flooding began on September 3, 1.9 million people have been affected and the death toll is 474 and rising.

Both India and Pakistan have been ramping up relief efforts. Pakistan has rescued nearly 30,000 people using helicopters and boats, while another 48,000 were rescued by civilian services. India sent out 80 medical teams to help the affected, and set up 19 relief camps in Srinagar.
