The United States will provide up to $50 million for earthquake relief and reconstruction in Pakistan, the U.S. ambassador said Monday. “The magnitude of this disaster is utterly overwhelming,” Ambassador Ryan Crocker said. “We have underway the beginning of a very major relief effort.” He spoke at an airport at the arrival of a U.S. transport plane carrying blankets, plastic sheets and other supplies for 2,500 families affected by the earthquake. Another U.S. plane carrying relief supplies arrived late Sunday. More planes were expected.
