Another spell of torrential rainfall and subsequent flooding is expected in the next 48 hours all over the country, according to Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD).
PMD has predicted the intensity of the current Monsoon spell to reduce after 48 hours as well.
In this regard, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has issued a red alert for Nullah Lai as Punjab will receive heavy downpour in the next 2 days.
