The Pakistan Meteorological Department has predicted rainfall from mid-July in Karachi.
Today, the temperature in the city was recorded at 31 degrees Celsius, with winds blowing at a speed of 20 kilometres an hour.
Sindh Governor Imran Ismail wrote a letter to Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and pointed out heavy losses of life and property in the devastating monsoon spell in the previous year urging for effective measures to save precious human lives.
“Saving the lives of the people is among the top priorities of the government,” Ismail had written in the letter, adding that the clearing of the storm water drains and removal of encroachments on and along their banks in accordance with the Supreme Court’s orders will help prevent another situation like last year’s.
He has further directed K-Electric, Hyderabad Electric Supply Company and Sukkur Electric Power Company to take necessary measures before and during rainfall.
