Weather Threat in Karachi: The possibility of heavy rains in Karachi city is raising concerns about urban flooding. Experts on meteorology warn that the Western System, which has entered the Arabian Sea, is expected to have significant effects in Karachi and Gwadar.
The Western System has the potential to become the most powerful weather system since 2019. Its reach is extensive, and it could cause severe rainfall across the province of Sindh, including Karachi. There are concerns that the resulting flooding could be as severe as the 2019 monsoon rains that caused extensive damage and loss of life.
According to meteorologists, Karachi city may experience intense thunderstorms with lightning from April 28th. These storms have the potential to be the most severe rainfall experienced since 2019.
Meanwhile, the fisheries department of Balochistan has issued an alert for all fishermen about the possibility of severe cyclonic activity in the province’s coastal waters. This alert is due to the Western System, which is expected to cause severe disturbances in the sea.
If the Western System affects Karachi city, the city may face severe flooding. Experts advise residents to take precautionary measures and avoid unnecessary travel during heavy rainfall to stay safe. It’s essential to monitor weather updates and follow the guidelines provided by local authorities during this time.
