    RAWALPINDI: Najam Hussain had to spend the whole Thursday night draining out rainwater from his house in a low-lying locality of the city.

    The 39-year-old, who works in a private firm in Islamabad and lives in Dhoke Khabba, said the rainwater started entering his house at midnight.

    He said the water level increased to about five feet in the house and he had to shift his family to the upper floor where they could not sleep in fear of any untoward situation.

    “Iesco also disconnected the electricity supply to the area and we had to drain out the water using an emergency light,” he said.

    Like Najam, Mohammad Rashid Malik, a resident of Arya Mohallah, said three-foot deep water accumulated on the nearby road and choked the drains of his house. “It took five hours to drain out the water from the house.”

    He said the whole night they spent reciting verses from the holy Quran to seek the help of Almighty Allah. “We have lived in the area for the last 25 years and every year we face a similar situation during the monsoon but the government never cleared the drains and Leh Nullah.”

    Houses, bridges and shops also damaged in many areas
    Naveed Butt, a resident of Mohanpura, said their locality was 10 feet above the bed of Leh Nullah but the choked drains and raised water level in the nullah created problems for them.

    There are many localities in the garrison city which have been inundated by the rainwater. People had a tough time in draining out the water from their houses as many parts of the city.

    He said Bazaar Kallan, Dingi Khoi, Raja Bazaar, Akalgarh, Nadeem Colony, Javed Colony, Dhoke Ratta, Ganjmandi, Jamia Masjid Road, Bani Chowk, Sadiqabad, Satellite Town, Commercial Market, College Road, Bohar Bazaar, Naya Mohallah, Raja Bazaar, Mohanpura, Nanakpura, Arjan Nagar and Amarpura were submerged in rainwater.

    Traders at Bohar Bazaar and Moti Bazaar were also seen draining out the rainwater from their shops. “The rainwater also damaged a number of shops. We have already been suffering due to the slump in business these days and the rain has added to our problems,” said Sharjeel Mir, the president of the traders association.

    The rain also affected the operation of the railway traffic. After 18 hours, the rail traffic was restored between Rawalpindi and Lahore and other parts of the country.

    Landsliding at Domaili and Dina near Jhelum had affected the rail traffic on Thursday.

    When contacted, Pakistan Railways Divisional Superintendent Rawalpindi Munawar Khan said there was landsliding at many areas and the clearance of the mud took some hours to restore the traffic.

    The rainwater also inundated Benazir Bhutto International Airport due to the choked nullah from Chirah Road, causing delay to some flights.

    The Meteorological Department recorded 212 millimetres (mm) of rainfall in Islamabad and 255mm in Rawalpindi and forecast overcast and isolated rain in the twin cities in the next 24 hours.

    According to a press release issued by DCO Sajid Zafar Dall, 93 houses were damaged during the torrential rains in the city.

    Two bridges, one in tehsil Kallar Syedan and the other in Kotli Sattian, were also damaged. A bridge on Rawalpindi-Kotli Sattian road at Chaint was also damaged. The rehabilitation work on the bridge was in progress which could be completed in about 72 hours.

    The district administration has directed the commuters to use the Bun route while travelling from Rawalpindi to Kotli Sattian.

    Most of the damages to the infrastructure were reported from localities situated on both sides of river Soan. The highest level of the water during the last 24 hours was recorded 18.44 ft in Nullah Leh which flows from Islamabad to river Soan.

    Meanwhile, rescue teams of the city district government and the health, livestock and other departments have established their relief camps in areas affected by the heavy rains.

    It's a Punjab disaster, not a national disaster - Punjab has a CM whose claim to fame is that he gets things done - lets see if he and his administration can do what they get paid for doing.

    Hmmm, what to do? Gotta have talk with the Mullahs, the Lej and ASWJ, they are good with God, maybe they can intercede. "Damn, I wish I had the time to have fixed this problem, but bai-jan in trouble and then Nisar and his wig - , what am I going to wear tonight, I never can decide

    205 dead as rains hammer Punjab, Azad Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan

    LAHORE: Heavy monsoon rains and flooding in Punjab, Azad Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan have claimed at least 205 lives.

    Ahmed Kamal, an official from the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), told Dawn that 131 people have died as a result of heavy rains in Punjab; 11 have died in Gilgit Baltistan whereas the death toll in Azad Kashmir has risen to 63.

    According to the NDMA official, a huge amount of flood water has accumulated in the Qadirabad headworks on River Chenab whereas the Trimmu Barrage is receiving 177,000 cusecs water on River Chenab.

    A flood alert posted on the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) website stated that due to the second flood peak in River Chenab, the peak at Trimmu is likely to persist for another 24-48 hours with a maximum flow of 8,00,000 cusecs.

    The exceptionally high flood level may continue until September 12 (2100 PST), the PMD stated in a press release.

    As a consequence, Sargodha, Khushab, Jhang and Toba Tek Singh districts are likely to be inundated.

    The devastation brought by the floods is simply indescribable. It brings much grief to read that many homes and lives have been destroyed in these floods. According to various sources, several thousand homes have collapsed and at least 200 people have died in Pakistan. The pictures clearly depict the pain and suffering of all those who have been affected by the floods. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who has been impacted by the floods. We sincerely hope that they will find the strength to deal with this tragedy.
