    Heavy rain forcast for Punjab and KP

    LAHORE: Widespread rain that might be very heavy to extremely heavy at places is likely to generate river and urban flooding from Monday to Tuesday, posing a substantial threat to life and property over large areas.

    The rain will be caused by a combination of very strong westerly wave and a monsoon low pressure over the Indian states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, the Meteorological Department said in a warning issued on Sunday.

    It began to rain in Lahore on Sunday.

    According to the Met department, a low pressure area over central India is likely to move northwest over the next 24 hours. It may persist over northern India during the next three to four days. Under the influence of this low pressure, strong to very strong monsoon current will penetrate into upper Punjab and Kashmir during the week.

    Cold air associated with a fresh westerly wave is also likely to grip upper parts of the country on Monday.

    Due to the interaction of thee two systems, heavy to extremely heavy rain is expected in Rawalpindi, Sargodha, Gujranwala, Lahore, Hazara, Mardan, Peshawar and Kohat divisions and Kashmir from Monday to Wednesday. Scattered heavy rain is expected in Dera Ghazi Khan, Dera Ismail Khan, Zhob, Sibi and Naseerabad divisions.

    The department forecast flash floods in vulnerable districts of Malakand, Hazara, Mardan, Peshawar, Rawalpindi, Sargodha, Gujranwala, and Lahore divisions and Kashmir on Monday and Tuesday, and in D.G. Khan, D.I. Khan, Zhob, Sibi, and Naseerabad on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    The department’s Lahore based Flood Forecasting Division (FFD) said there was every likelihood of high to very high flood in the rivers Chenab and Jhelum and their tributaries (Bhimber, Bhundar, Halsi, Daulti, Aik, Palku, Kahan and Bunnah) in the Sialkot region.

    The rivers Kabul, Kurram and Gambila and their tributaries along with those of the Ravi (Deg, Bhed, Hasri, Jhajri, Bassantar, Bein, Ujh, and Tarnah) are also likely to be in high to very high flood.

    Urban flooding is likely in Lahore, Gujranwala, Faisalabad, Sargodha, Rawalpindi, D.I. Khan, Peshawar, Kohat, Bannu, Malakand and Hazara from Aug 13 to 15.

    Flash flooding cannot be ruled out in the hill torrents of D.G. Khan.

    The Sutlej at Ganda Singhwala is likely to be in low flood during the next 24 hours.

    The Met department advised all authorities concerned to remain alert during the week, particularly from Monday to Wednesday.

    Meanwhile, Noorpur Thal received 60mm of rain on Sunday, Lower Dir 43mm, Multan 27, Bahawalnagar and Saidu Sharif 21, Khuzdar 14, Gujranwala 13, Malam Jabba eight, Islamabad and Lahore seven, Barkhan six and Murree, Okara and Risalpur five millimetres each.

    Rain again started in Lahore in the evening and it was heavily overcast.

    It has been well reported. Note not 1 piece of action has been taken to counter the present situation. No barriers, no alerts. Clearly deaths will be expected. Another failing in site.

    With zero investment in the border construction we can expect more of the same as the last 5 years have shown us

    Re: 31 dead in rain-related incidents in Punjab

    Every year it's the same story, people dying in a rain storm, yes, a rain storm -- that can't be right, how does one die from rain?

    It's not the rain, it's the roof or the general structure that passes for a house - Stupid and sad - and yet year after year, the same stuff

    Pakistan braces for more killer monsoon rain

    More than 30 people have been killed as a result of heavy monsoon rains in Pakistan, as authorities warned more intense rainfall and flash floods may be imminent.
    Most of the deaths came in roof collapses in buildings in Punjab, the country's richest and most populous province, with 13 people killed in the provincial capital Lahore.

    Pakistan has suffered deadly monsoon floods for at least the past four years, and the government has been criticized for not doing more to mitigate against the dangers posed by seasonal rains washing away homes and farmland.

    Rizwan Naseer, the director general of rescue services in Punjab, confirmed the toll and said the injured were being moved to hospitals.

    Meanwhile, Pakistan's meteorological office warned yesterday that more heavy rain and thunderstorms are expected in Punjab and the north of the country in the coming 72 hours and may cause flooding in rivers.

    Water flow in Rawalpindi's Nullah Lea crosses red line

    RAWALPINDI: Following the heavy downpour in the twin cities, water flow in ‘Nullah Lea’ has crossed the dangerous level, DawnNews reported in early hours of Friday.

    The Rawalpindi administration has issued an alert, apart from seeking the army’s help in case of any dangerous outcome. Administration authorities have also started evacuation of the people residing at vulnerable spots near Nullah Lea.

    The development comes as at least 40 people have already lost their lives in rain-related incidents across Punjab.

    Know more: Heavy rains claim at least 40 lives across Punjab

    Water flows have breached the 17 feet limit at the nullah that lies in the heart of Rawalpindi.

    Announcement were made from mosques for residents to exercise caution, when the water level crossed the 16 feet limit at the nullah, while evacuation started after the level hit 17 feet.

    The heavy rains spell has been generated by the first well-marked low pressure of the monsoon season that is moving towards Pakistan via Indian Rajasthan. Also, a day earlier in its warning, the Pakistan Meteorological Department Flood Forecasting Bureau in Lahore said the low pressure was likely to move to Pakistan in “the next 24 hours”.

    Pakistan has suffered deadly monsoon floods for at least the last four years – in 2013, 178 people were killed and around 1.5 million affected by flooding around the country.

    The floods of 2010 were the worst in Pakistan's history, with 1,800 people killed and 21 million affected in what became a major humanitarian crisis.

    The government has been criticised for not doing more to mitigate against the dangers posed by seasonal rains washing away homes and farmland.

    Re: Water flow in Rawalpindi's Nullah Lea crosses red line

    As a resident of Pindi, the Nalla Lea has always been a huge problem. It always chokes up and overflows when there is rainfall, it needs to be overhauled so that it does not cause more problems for the residents.

    Death toll touches 86 as torrential rains continue

    RAWALPINDI/SIALKOT/MUZAFFARABAD: Over a dozen people were killed and many others were injured on Friday as torrential rains wreaked havoc in northeastern Punjab and Azad Kashmir and prompted a landslide in Gilgit-Baltistan, taking the death toll from the heavy downpour to at least 86.

    Flash floods have inundated villages, prompting authorities to send troops to evacuate residents and assist in the emergency. Most of the deaths were caused by roof collapses, landslides and electric shocks.

    A number of cities received over 130mm of rain. Pakistan's meteorological office issued a severe weather warning for northeast Punjab and Kashmir, saying more intense rain was expected which could trigger flash flooding.

    Pakistan regularly suffers from flooding during the monsoon season. In 2010, flash floods killed 1,700 people. In 2013, 178 people were killed and around 1.5 million affected by flooding.
