Unexpected rain in parts of Karachi brings relief from heatwave


A sigh of relief for Karachiites as parts of the port city on Monday received unexpected rain after a sweltering heatwave that persisted over the last couple of days.

The rain also caused the humidity level to drop and turned the weather mildly pleasant.

The areas that received moderate to heavy downpour include Malir, Sarjani Town, Gulshane-e-Hadeed, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Saddar, Nazimabad, North Nazimabad, North Karachi, and Saadi Town among others.

The Meteorological department alerted Sindh’s fishermen from venturing deep into the sea for next few days, saying that tropical cyclone might cause turbulence in the sea.

Earlier, the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) had forecast a heatwave built due to a low-pressure system formed in the south of Karachi and areas of India’s Gujarat and Mumbai.

According to Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz, the heatwave will last till September 24. The intensity of the heatwave is expected to be moderate because of the variations in the humidity level.

The system has turned into a depression, however, the tropical cyclone will dispel in the sea without causing any destruction in the region.

“Karachi is not under any threat from this system”, Sarfaraz added.

Twitterati took to the microblogging website to share the photos and videos of the unexpected rain in the metropolis.
