Last week, Lahore experienced record-breaking rainfall, with 226 millimeters recorded at the airport and 161.8 millimeters in the city. This was the highest recorded rainfall in a day since 2011. The heavy rainfall caused excessive urban flooding in low-lying areas of the city.
In light of the heavy rains and their effects on Lahore, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has directed the concerned authorities to take preventive measures and ensure the drainage of rainwater in the city.
