An urban flooding warning has been issued for Karachi as heavy rain hit the metropolis from July 1!

The Pakistan Metrological Department (PMD) has predicted heavy monsoon rainfall with thunderstorms starting from July 1 across Sindh.

PMD in weather alert notified that moist currents from the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal are likely to enter upper parts of the country from 29th June (Wednesday) which may intensify and expand to southern parts of the country by the end of this week.

Under the influence of this system, heavy rainfall with windstorms are expected in Karachi, Hyderabad, Thatta, Badin, and Dadu from July 1, it added.

The heavy rainfall may cause urban flooding in Karachi and Hyderabad from July 3 to 5, PMD warned.

The PDMA has also advised the public to stay away from windows and doors during heavy rain and strong winds.

“Avoid roadway underpasses, drainage ditches, low-lying areas, and areas where water collects there can be unexpectedly flood or overflow,” it said.
