Heavy rain lashes Islamabad, Rawalpindi


ISLAMABAD: Heavy rain lashed the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi Sunday morning, inundating low-lying areas.

In a statement, Pakistan Meterological Department (PMD) has said monsoon currents from the Arabian Sea are penetrating the upper parts of the country.

Hot and humid weather is likely in most plain areas of the country. Rain-wind/thundershower is expected in Kashmir, Potohar region, Islamabad, Punjab, northeast Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Heavy falls are also likely at isolated places in Potohar region, Kashmir and upper Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The met office has also advised tourists and travellers to remain extra cautious to avoid any untoward situation during the wet spell. Wind-thunderstorm may damage loose structures like electric poles, and solar panels, warned the PMD.
