Heavy Rainfall In Lahore

Heavy rainfall in Lahore caused a chaotic situation for the citizens. The rain period is recorded to be more than 12 hours and a total of 252 milliliters is recorded on a scale in the past 24 hours.

6 people were reported killed across Lahore. According to Rescue 1122, two people were killed as the roof collapsed. Another casualty was reported due to an electrocution in the China Scheme located in Gujar Pura. Three more precious lives were recorded breathless as they couldn’t bear the burden of the fallen roof.

It was a horrible day for those who traveled on motorcycle and cycle since the tires of their ride slipped. By chance, if they didn’t slip, nothing could save them from the water splashes of the passing by cars.

Those who traveled by cars still can’t escape the rain. Those four tires were no more helpful. Hundreds of cars were seen stuck almost drowned in water. Rainwater did enter the cars and spoiled the interior and mechanism.
