August 24, 2020
KARACHI (92 News) – Several areas, including Sarjani Town and Yousaf Goth, submerged due to rains wreaking havoc in the city for the last few days. Rescuers are using boats to help trapped in the rainwater. Overflowing gutters, mud and heaps of garbage have multiplied the problems of the people. Water accumulated in Yousaf Goth could not be drained out. Owing to the incessant rains, the anti-encroachments operation had to be postponed along the drains. Sindh Information Minister Nasir Shah said that encroachments would be removed phase-wise. "All the affected people will be provided alternate residences," he added. On the other hands, incessant rains caused devastation in Tharparkar, Badin and Mirpur Khas. All roads, streets and areas were inundated and rainwater entered houses and shops. Badin is facing flood-like situation due to the rain. People are waiting for help from the government.
