Flash floods and thunderstorms wreak havoc in Pak, 28 killed
Islamabad: Massive thunderstorms lashed several parts of Pakistan, including Punjab and Sindh provinces, killing at least 26 people and injuring several others, according to media reports on Tuesday.
Heavy rain and storm caused by a westerly wave uprooted electricity poles and trees in different parts of the country and also damaged properties on Monday.
Intermittent downpour in western, central and northern parts of the country for the past few days has rendered mud houses susceptible to the collapse, while landslide and flash floods in some areas have already made several roads dangerous for travel, Dawn reported.
Thunderstorm in Punjab province resulted in the collapse of several buildings, killing at least nine persons, including two women.
Four deaths were reported in Khanewal district; three in Hasilpur area of Bahawalnagar district; and two Dunyapur tehsil of Lodhran district. (PTI)
