KARACHI: The water supply to Karachi was suspended on Saturday after a breach occurred in the Hub Canal, which carries water from the dam to the city. According to details, a five feet wide breach in the Hub Dam canal coming from Balochistan disrupted the water supply to the port city.

“Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KW&SB) is providing 76 million of gallons water to Karachi from Hub Dam,” he said, adding that the supply would get better in the evening.
