Karachi Likely to Receive 100mm of Rain Today

Under the ongoing monsoon spell, Karachi will likely receive 100mm of rain on Saturday, according to Director Meteorological Department Abdul Qayyum Bhutto.

The Met department director said that various areas in the city will either receive heavy or moderate rain showers.

According to The News, the northern parts of the city received an unprecedented 186mm of rain, which resulted in areas such as Surjani Town, North Karachi, Orangi Town, Nazimabad and North Nazimabad being paralyzed and their main roads and localities flooding.

He said that the monsoon spell can last with intermittent rain showers until Tuesday, adding that heavy rains can cause urban flooding.

The fifth rain spell in Karach has brought with it unexpectedly heavier showers that caused severe urban flooding in low-lying areas and nullahs to overflow despite the recent cleanup operations.
