U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will announce on Thursday more aid to help those affected by the devastating floods in Pakistan, the State Department said.

Spokesman P.J. Crowley told reporters Wednesday that Clinton will announce the new assistance while attending meetings at the United Nations in New York. The United States has provided more than 90 million dollars in aid since the flooding hit earlier this month.

The disaster has claimed more than 1,600 lives. The United Nations estimates that 6-8 million people are in desperate need of help.
