Rain Check!

VE.jpg

News of a slight shower is trickling in from various sources, thanks to a tropical storm in the Arabian sea, headed for the coast of Oman.

The tropical storm is expected to crash on the coast of Oman in the next 48 hours. Authorities in Oman have relocated over 7000 residents so far.

For Karachi though, things are looking pleasant. Wind speed is expected to pick up over the next couple of days, and chances of a light drizzle also in the next 48 hours.

Lets keep our fingers crossed!

    What’s wrong with map ? Weather predicted is very right on that. Rain expected from 5:00pm to 11:00pm

    @ KEEP WALKING:

    Map is not weired but due to clouds you can’t see the Makran coastline properly.

    I was also puzzled to see it at first.

    Ive been dissapointed by these false promises since saturday.

    Mumbai has been having thunder storms since 10 days now from what Ive been told.

    Was talking to a friend on Friday and the connection kept getting lost, seems Hutch cannot take any kind of singnal interuption.

    coming back to the post, Has anyone tried doing the rain-dance!? :P

    Mohammad Darling,

    How come you didn’t put your signature – cross and star of David – this time.
    Hey you, what you write is difficult to understand. Can you write in Urdu please? or else, please write proper English.
    Samajh mae aayaa?


  10. Salman A. (unregistered) on June 5th, 2007 @ 9:33 pm

    @BALMA:
    first darling and then criticism all the way? you know what it comes down to? husband and wife :)

    @REDMUNK:
    I can’t dance but I can sing and that might bring rain ‘cos:
    Koi ladka hai jab wo gaata hai
    Saawan aata hai……. dada dada duh da…..

    LOL……

    @Balma;

    well said, I am too getting sick & tired of his
    un-related & poorly phrased messages.

    I think someone should give him a ‘full stop’.

  13. Ahmed (unregistered) on June 5th, 2007 @ 11:37 pm

    our met department says karachi is not in danger but expect flooding so much for danger btw the cyclone hitting oman has been named “Gonu” who comes up with these names? ever wonder why hurricanes and cyclones in the US have she names: Rita, Katrina, Wilma ….


  14. Balma (unregistered) on June 5th, 2007 @ 11:42 pm

    Mohammad Darling:
    OK fine, I am Indian Hindu. But, still, can you write in Urdu or your mother tongue beacause it is totally impossible to understand your nonsense sermons, dreams, predictions, and dajjal stuff. What are you eating that you get such bhayaanak dreams?

    And, where do you cut-and-paste the cross and the star of David from?
