Karachi continues to receive light to heavy drizzle a day after the city administration warned residents to restrict their movement due to the predicted heavy rain.

The Krachiites were greeted with a pleasant Friday morning as parts of the city were wet.

II. Chundrigar Road, Saddar, Sarjani Town, Malir, North Karachi, Korangi Industrial Area, Orangi Town, Baldia Town, Gulshan-e-Iqbal and Manghopir Northern Bypass are some of the city’s areas that have received rain.

Meanwhile, Karachi Mayor Murtaza Wahab posted about the city administration’s preparations to avoid any inconvenience to Karachi’s residents.

“Apart from pumps, 53 of these suction vehicles have been moved to various locations for clearing rainwater as and when required,” he wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has canceled the holidays of staffers while imposing rain emergency across Sindh and issuing high alert in all local bodies, administrations and hospitals.

The chief minister has also appealed to the citizens not to leave their homes unnecessarily. An emergency cell has also been set up at the Cantonment Headquarters.

The KMC has delivered machinery for rainwater drainage across the city.

It should be noted that the Sindh government, on Thursday, declared a rain emergency in the province and decided that offices in Karachi would be open for half a day today, viewing the forecast of heavy rains in the megalopolis.
