Monsoon rains lash southern, upper Pakistan as 14 more deaths reported

Canada Global (Web News) In the past 24 hours, monsoon rains have pounded the southern regions of the nation, causing flash flooding that cut off numerous cities and villages from the rest of the nation and killing 12 people and wounding 15.

In Sindh and Balochistan, a large region was drowned by rainwater and a deluge in local streams and minor rivers, causing damage to homes, businesses, and infrastructure. Additionally, southern Punjab’s arid region of Cholistan and other areas saw severe downpours.

The Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) reports that six deaths and 13 additional injuries have been confirmed in Balochistan thus far.

On the other side, a landslip in Gilgit-Baltistan resulted in the deaths of three family members—a mother and her two children—and the injuries of two others.

In the past, flash flooding brought on by heavy rains forced the administration to declare an emergency in Lower Chitral and Upper Chitral, a region susceptible to flash flooding like other areas of Malakand and Hazara divisions.
