Weather update: Why Karachi received heavy rain overnight?
Karachi:. Heavy rains battered the metropolis for hours on Monday, inundating low-lying areas.
The city received an average of the entire monsoon rains just in matter of few hours, according to an expert.
The thunderstorm got stuck over southern Karachi since 9 PM on Sunday.
Pakistan Weather Portal said the second monsoon spell is extremely intense in Karachi. “Not only it has extended unexpectedly but causing 3-digit rain figures. On all three days of July 7, July 8 and July 10, 100 mm rain fell per day so 300 mm rain has fallen so far,” the portal said in a Twitter update.
It said hunderstorms in southern areas of Karachi were largely off the coast and that was the reason heavier rain fell in the sea.
“It is a cause of concern as the thunderstorm has stalled. Karachi has again recorded 100+ mm rain in few hours” the statement said.
