After enjoying the rain for a good 30-40 mins last night, i came to work over joyed (like the school kids), eager to share my love of lighning with my co-worker.

Thats when lightning struck.

A lot of areas have not recieved any rain at all! Some have just recieved a drizzle, and nothing else.

Apparently, areas deeper into the metropolis, (i.e. Shah Faisal Colony, Airport, Gulistan e Jauhar, Malir etc) recieved the heaviest rainfall.

The main regions of University Road, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, along with connecting regions of Nazimabad, Azizabad, FB Area, Buffer Zone recieved a considerably less downpour. Residents of Clifton and Defence also witnessed ligher showers compared to the main rain areas.

There are some reports of hailstones as well (also reported by Moon).

Whats the status of your areas? What did you see?

    Here in North Karachi, near Sakhi Hassan and Nagan Chowrangi we received a good rain. I cannot see any ICE…
    I asked many people here in office and concluded that it rain throughout Karachi either less or more. Just a drizzle in Orangi Town and near by areas.
