Monsoon downpour subsides hot weather in Karachi

According to a weather report, a strong monsoon system has strengthened over the Indian Ocean which will trigger the formation of low pressure in the Bay of Bengal on September 9.

On Friday, at least three people died in different rain-related incidents after a heavy downpour hit Karachi and its adjoining areas. The rain crippled routine life in the city while the power supply of approximately 190 feeders was interrupted.

Met office predicts rain

The rain badly affected the city's ill-maintained civic infrastructure, transmission, and distribution system of the K-Electric, as well as vehicular traffic on major thoroughfares. The PMD stated that a maximum rainfall of 66.7mm was recorded in Saadi Town while several other city areas had received over 20mm of rain, including old airport, Jinnah Terminal, PAF Base Masroor and PAF Base Faisal, Surjani and Kemari.

It added that North Karachi received around 30mm of rain while DHA also received over20mm of rain during the monsoon spell.
