Pakistan and neighboring India have been sweltering amid an intense heat wave that has led to weeks of dangerous air quality and rampaging wildfires. Now, the early-season heat is to blame for causing the rapid melt of the Shishper Glacier in northern Pakistan, which led to destructive flooding downstream.

The Hassanabad Bridge in Pakistan’s Hunza Valley was completely destroyed on Saturday as the melting glacier sent torrents of water coursing through area streams in a phenomenon known as a glacial lake outburst flood.

Dramatic footage showed concrete blocks crumbling and eventually giving way under the punishing pressure of the raging floodwaters. Observers might typically associate such scenes with extremely heavy rainfall rather than the impacts of rapidly melting glaciers.

The destroyed bridge cut the connection between northern Pakistan and China on the Karakoram Highway, a popular tourist attraction famed for being one of the highest paved roads in the world.

Local law enforcement confirmed the developments of the destroyed bridge on Twitter, stating that small vehicles were being diverted to Sas Valley Road.

The floodwaters also swept away two power plants in Hassanabad. Officials were evacuating individuals living in vulnerable locations near the floodwaters and supplying provisions.

In mid-May 2019, NASA highlighted the Shishper Glacier, predicting that the Karakoram Highway, large numbers of homes in the village of Hasanabad, important irrigation channels and two power plants could all be affected in the event of a severe flood.

Over the past 20 days, the water volume at the Shishper glacier lake increased by 40% as a result of an unusual early-season spike in temperatures.

Although official weather observations are sparse in this particular part of the country, temperatures at other high-elevation sites in northern Pakistan have repeatedly hit the upper 80s and 90s F (30-37 C) over the past couple of weeks.

Farther south at lower elevations, temperatures have repeatedly eclipsed 110 F (43 C), which is on the order of 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit (3-6 degrees Celsius) above average.

  1. Food Riots comes to Iran already people are hungry and Army of Hunger people will revolt bye bye Ayatollahs soon. Israel is in final stages of Bombing Iran attack without contact.. Tehran 2 apple movie?

  2. No signs of drought in Pakistan. Once the famine hits, they will be busy with food riots, pestilences, diseases, and burying dead bodies. Most of the third world will be pruned down. If corn isn’t planted in volume, then prices for livestock feed will skyrocket. Supply and demand. I’ve tried a barley/corn mix, but the animals don’t like it as much. Pigs/pork use corn as feed too. Alfalfa and hays are other crops that needs watering, so that will also be affected in drought prone areas.
