Karachi Heat Wave to Continue as NDMA Takes Action

Karachi, along with other coastal areas, is likely to face a heat wave, accompanied with a further rise in temperature in the upcoming days.

NDMA Takes Action

Upon receiving warnings from the PMD, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has decided to take action.

On Tuesday, the NDMA did not only direct the concerned authorities to take the required measures but also issued a heat-wave advisory in order to prevent any unfortunate circumstances.

The NDMA is on a constant watch of the situation according to the document submitted by it.

Heat Wave To End By Friday

According to chief of PMD, Dr. Ghulam Rasul, even though the affected areas are expected to undergo a rise in temperature, they won’t experience a rise in humidity.

He further added that in the coastal areas of Karachi, the heat-wave is expected to end by Friday, and a drop in temperature shall be observed beginning on Saturday, “As the wind will start blowing from sea to land.”

Beginning Saturday, the temperatures are expected to drop to 35°C to 36°C, from the scorching 40°C faced by the city.

Country Likely To Face Water-Shortage

Dr. Ghulam, further brought into light the gravity of the situation by highlighting that the country is likely to face a water shortage in the upcoming months accompanied with an on-going dry spell.

He further added that, “Currently inflow of water in two main reservoirs of the country is very low while outflow is high. Temperatures in northern areas have dropped due to which glaciers have stopped melting,”

Rain Pattern Across The Country

Northern areas and north east Punjab are expected to receive a short rain spell after a week. Even though the rain spell is likely to lower the temperature down in the region, it would still not provide sufficient water to fill the reservoirs, Dr. Ghulam added.

Slightly below normal rainfall is predicted in most parts of Pakistan during the month, moreover two to three spells of rain with light to moderate intensity are expected in different parts of the country.

Most parts of the country are predicted to receive slightly below normal rainfall. Moreover, different parts of the country are likely to receive two to three light spells of rain.

    عجیب بات ہے عبد الوہاب صاحب! جو چیز اللہ تعالیٰ کے حکم سے چلتی ہے اس کے نہ چلنے کی وجہ آپ NDMA سے پوچھ رہے ہیں؟؟؟
    ہاں! اس کی ایک ہی وجہ ہے اور وہ یہ کے باغی سزا کا مستحق ہوتا ہے ، بحیثیت مسلمان ہم سب اللہ تعالیٰ کا نام لیتے ہیں لیکن اپنی من چاہی زندگی اور خواہشات کی پیروی میں لگے ہوتے ہیں یہ اللہ تعالیٰ کے ساتھ کھلی بغاوت ہے، اللہ تعالیٰ نے یہ جو کائنات بنائی یہ انسان کے لیے بنائی ، اس کی ہر چیز انسان کے فائدے کے لیے ہے اور انسان کو آخرت کے لیے بنایا، لیکن جب انسان بغاوت پر آتا ہے اور تو پھر اللہ کا چلایا ہوا نظام بھی اس کا دشمن بن جایا کرتا ہے۔

    ہر چیز NDMA اور حکومت سے نہ پوچھیں!
