Karachi – Lashed out by heavy showers

Cyclone Phet seems to start making its impact as its raining like hell in Karachi right now. I borrowed the title from GEO and they are right. Looks like Karachi is actually being lashed out heavily for last few hours now. Only in morning we shall see the extent of damanges. According to met officials, most parts ofcity will continue be lashed out by rain in torrents for some days encountering strong winds inflicted by thunderstorm. Lord keep all safe.

    yeah and the irony is that it(s) all happening at the World Environment Day….let(s) just hope our city and all those who are/will-be affected gets out of it without much pain…

    I ventured out to the airport last night when the storm hit around 3 am … on the way the entire Shara-e-Faisal was flooded. It was a disaster. Many families with little children were trapped in their cars … there was no sign of help from the authorities. No trucks to pump the water out, no police, no medical services, nothing. Zilch.

    The only people I am seeing outside doing anything are MQM workers. There is no city government in action.

    Most people who are venturing out deserved to get stuck.
    Unless you are employed by an emergency services org, like Police or hospital, stay inside. Your cousin arriving at the aiport on vacation from his dishwashing job in toronto, ask them to wait at the airport. IF you get stuck on Drigh Road near nursery on your way to the airport, it is your fault stupid!

    again it proved our met department is fucked up, they did all statements based on internet weather sites which do calculations with time lag 3 – 5 hours ‘after its over’

    the only closest correct info was on Aljazeera weather which announced that worst hit after oman will be Gawader in Balochistan, Pakistan and easter parts of rural sindh province, the city Karachi have no threat being not under direct path of the cyclone and only mild to heavy intermittent showers on scattered parts of Karachi, will happen. South eastern sindh will be most affected begining Sunday afternoon onwards till 11 PM Sunday, calm will prevail and only intermittent drizzle in Karachi and upper parts of sindh as reported on friday 10 PM (PAK TIME) bulletin,

    and thats what really happened. Sun is shinning and I seriously doubt if there will be any drizzle today or later in the week… !
