Pakistan News Alert

Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) issues weather warnings for Sindh, Balochistan October 28-30; heavy rain, flooding, and associated disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 10/28/2019, 12:00 AM until 10/31/2019, 11:59 PM (Asia/Karachi). COUNTRY/REGION Makran Coast, Sindh province, Karachi

Event

The Pakistan Meteorological Office (PMD) has issued a weather alert for lower Sindh and along the Makran coast (Baluchistan province) from Monday, October 28, through Wednesday, October 30. The alert was triggered as the cyclonic storm Kyarr, which is not expected to directly impact Pakistan, has rapidly intensified into a Very Severe Cyclonic Storm (VSCS) over the east central Arabian sea.

In Karachi, more than 800 people have been evacuated as of Monday morning (local time).

Heavy rain may cause flooding, transport disruptions, and possible power outages in the affected areas.

Advice

Individuals in areas forecast to be affected are advised to monitor local weather reports, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, anticipate adverse weather and power and transportation disruptions, and remember that running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) is enough to knock over an adult - and never drive through flooded streets; floodwater may also contain wastewater and chemical products.
