    You have skipped three weather related posts and have created a new post just to say that you have never seen winds so strong before and you still have power ????? WTH

    Khitorpit, this is a Wind-related post.:-))

    Relating to the topic: I think the storm may have passed as the winds have subsided now.

    Last year the city govt. was blaming the previous Nazim for all the damage done by the rain, what do they have this year ?

    I think the storm is over. It rained like crazy, the wind though not as powerful as saturday but still the wind was also powerful. It’s not raining anymore and I think the wind has become pretty pleasent and not at all scary.

    But then again if somebody could confirm if it is over? or Should we expect more rain and more destructive wind?

    KESC did pretty well today. Lights went off in our part at 9pm, hours after the rainfall started. It’s some improvement I would say.

    performance of KESC was better today ! I wish I could say the same about the ‘us , the people of Karachi’

    Lights were on at my place during the rain, until a wire broke down on the street ! me along with few neighbors went to the KESC complaint center only to see that it was closed, the interesting part is that A KESC repair VAN was parked along with a PMT pole nearby with its stair leading up to the PMT and no one was on it on in the vehicle, only one thought came into my mind !! that they must be working there and must have left due to safety concerns of attack by Mob!

    I felt ashamed at the whole issue !! the KESC technicians working there were working for us the people! and if we wont let them work ! how do we expect 24/7 electricity??

    How many more post to go for this single topic. Why so-called authors unify and set aside a single post for all related issues.

    See its raining…..
    My TV Smoked….hell with kesc
    Hurricane coming …watch out
    Hirricane missed?…and what not

    Come-on guys? Its getting ridiculous. Next time i doubt you’ll keep us updated on the meter reading of your KEsc meter as well through separate posts.

    I think KMB has done a great job in updating us on recent incidents like the events of May 12th, load shedding in the city, and then this natural disaster and its on-going threat caused by the storm. I consider KMB a worthy & up-to-date source of information for NRK’s (non-resident Karachi’ites). You just never feel disconnected.

    Keep it up!

    Hey how is the condition in khi? Specially gulshan area and university road?

  15. Khaaksaar (unregistered) on June 27th, 2007 @ 12:26 pm

    A very good idea!

    The Cantonment Board Clifton (CBC) held a meeting Tuesday to discuss the modalities of removing all hoardings and billboards within the jurisdiction of the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) and CBC within 24 hours. The decision has been made in view of the dangers from weak hoardings to human life.
    This should be done in all of Karachi withen 24 hours. The real monsoon season is still ahead in July and Augest. Anyway while driving one should concentrate on the road, traffic, ditches, open manholes, people crossing the roads, Signals (if any), traffic police and not on hoardings and billboards.

    I do not think the poem will reach it’s destination.
