He will head to the south first to coordinate the effort to provide emergency shelter to families affected by Cyclone Phet in the Gwadar region. Mark will then travel north where a massive landslide in January blocked the flow of the Hunza river and destroyed two villages. The huge mass of rocks blocked the river, effectively damming up the entire area and creating and ever-rising lake.
