Torrential rains and flash floods wreaked havoc in Balochistan!
At least six people have lost their lives in Awaran, Khuzdar, Qila Saifullah, Zhob, and other areas of Balochistan so far due to heavy rains.
The flash floods in several districts have swept away roads, cutting off road links between Balochistan with other parts of the country.
As reported, the province has also been cut off from Karachi as a big chunk of the alternative road constructed between Hub and Karachi was swept away in the flash floods and now there is no road link left to connect Hub with Karachi.
The main bridge at the Hub river, which collapsed in the last year’s super flood, remains unbuilt so far despite the passage of one year, causing huge problems for the citizens.
According to the officials, the Bolan and Nari rivers were carrying massive flood waters after heavy rains in the Kharan, Ziarat, Duki, Sanjavi, Loralai, and Barkhan areas— the catchment areas of the two rivers.
