Flash floods caused by monsoon rains in northern Pakistan have killed at least 31 people and caused extensive damage to houses and structures in a village.

The floods swept away a mosque, houses and an army post in Ursoon Village, according to a local official on Sunday.

Monsoon, a rainy season that starts in mid-July and lasts until the end of August, strikes Pakistan hard each year.

Pakistan experiences severe weather patterns every year, which have affected millions of people, claimed many lives and wiped out millions of acres of farmland in recent years.
