KARACHI: The strong monsoon is expected to weaken later today after battering the metropolis, according to top meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz, after four people died in rain-related incidents across Karachi on Sunday.
Speaking to Geo News, a Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) official stated that the current spell will last until July 26, but that the weather system will most likely decapitate based on available data.
The highest rainfall was recorded at PAF Masroor Base, where 201mm of rain was reported until 5 a.m. Monday, according to PMD data.
Because of the flooding and heavy rains, the Sindh government declared Monday (today) a public holiday in Karachi and Hyderabad divisions.
The flash floods also caused power outages in some areas, with Karachi-Electric shutting down approximately 180 feeders out of 1,900.
