Islamabad (CNN)Flash floods caused by abnormally heavy monsoon rains killed at least 549 people in Pakistan over the past month, with remote communities in the impoverished southwestern province of Balochistan among the hardest hit, a government agency said.

Government agencies and the army have set up aid and relief camps in flood-hit regions and are working to help relocate families and provide food and medicine.
Aside from the fatalities, the flooding had damaged more than 46,200 houses, the National Disaster Management Authority said on Friday.
    "We're doing our best to provide for extensive relief and rehabilitation of flood victims," Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said during a visit to stricken areas.

          Suicidal Man Killed By PA State Trooper After Hours-Long Standoff: Reports

          A 59-year-old Pennsylvania man threatening to kill himself was shot dead by a state trooper Friday, Aug. 5, various news reports say.

          Douglas Stanton's 32-year-old relative called police around 11 p.m. saying he was threatening to kill himself and if police came, he'd shoot them, WTAE and Erie News Now say citing PA State Police.

          Troopers tried to get Stanton outside of his house on the 400 block of Main Street in Rouseville Borough about 45 minutes later, and a search warrant of the house was obtained around 3 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, evacuating the neighborhood, WTAE said.

          After hours of negotiations, Stanton came out and pointed a handgun toward troopers, prompting one to fire his weapon — striking Stanton around 8:30 a.m., the outlets say citing police.

          Stanton was pronounced dead at the scene and the Venango County District Attorney's is investigating.
