The wrath of Monsoon rainfalls throughout the country has particularly affected Balochistan and Sindh provinces. The current torrential spells have not only choked drainages but also killed several people. Furthermore, the rains have damaged roads as well as billions of rupees worth of properties.
Senator Sherry Rehman, Federal Minister for Climate Change, Senator Sherry Rehman, on this event stated that 30 years old records in Balochistan and Sindh have been broken for July.
In the first week of July, 72.1 mm of rainfall was recorded, which was normally 62.4 mm in Sindh province during the monsoon season. On the other hand, Balochistan which previously received 39 mm of rainfall in July during the monsoon period, has received 45.9 mm of rainfall.
During the initial 9 days of July, both Balochistan and Sindh have already gone beyond the expected limit of rainfall. Furthermore, in the next 19 days, it is expected that more monsoon rainfalls may break further records. The heavy rainfall in both provinces has led to blocking sewage and drainage systems.
