NDMA issues advisory for Sindh, Balochistan ahead of fourth rain spell

The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) on Thursday has issued an advisory for Sindh and Balochistan ahead of fourth rain spell. 

NDMA alerted the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) and relevant departments ahead of a rain spell forecast to hit Karachi and other parts of Sindh and Balochistan from Thursday onwards.

“Road clearing machinery and necessary staff should be prepared for an emergency situation,” said the NDMA in its advisory.

 NDMA also advised citizens not to leave their homes for any unnecessary things and stay away from electricity poles.

The NDMA has also advised fishermen to not go deep into the sea as the waves will be high in Sindh and Makran coastal belt.

On the other hand, Karachi Met Director Abdul Qayyum Bhutto rejected the rumours circulating on social media claiming that the weather system that is expected to cause heavy rains in the province has been named.

“Some people’s use of such terms on social media for the upcoming weather system has not only confused the masses but also created confusion among the national authorities and international meteorologists, he said.

“The temperature is expected to rise up to 39 to 41 degrees Celsius, with 70 to 80% humidity. This will be followed by a thunderstorm with rain and gusty winds,” said Karachi Met Director.

“The merger of two monsoon systems — one present in south-east Sindh and the other originating from the Bay of Bengal — heavy to very heavy rains are expected in the entire southern province, including Karachi, he added, “Both the weather systems are strengthening.”

According to Mr. Bhutto, widespread thunderstorms with isolated heavy to very heavy rains are expected in Karachi, Hyderabad, Thatta, Badin, Tharparkar, Umerkot, Mirpurkhas, Sanghar, Tando Allahyar, Matiari, Tando Mohammad Khan, Jamshoro, Dadu and Shaheed Benazirabad from Thursday to Saturday.

“We are expecting 100mm to 130mm of rain in Karachi during this period”, he added.
