The Pakistan Floods

Cheryl earlier linked to a post on Pakistan by Juan Cole that includes this map from the BBC. I think the map itself is worth posting.

The flooded area is less than what I have understood from previous reports. Perhaps flooded and affected areas were combined. What is an affected area if it is not flooded ?

I can't speak for the BBC, but I would guess that "affected areas" include those in which transportation is affected by flooding in adjacent areas, and where refugees from the floods have gone.

Probably some other issues, too, but those immediately come to my mind.
