Some 350,000 people have been forced from their homes and another 4.7 million people affected by the flooding since August 22, Ahmed Kamal of the National Disaster Management Authority said.
More than 15,000 villages have been affected and many houses destroyed or damaged in the past five weeks, he said.
Pakistan has suffered a series of devastating inundations, affecting millions of people, in recent years.
Flooding last year killed 470 people and impacted 9.1 million others, Kamal said.
