Strong Storms and heavy rains wreaked havoc in Punjab, KPK & 20 dead.
Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa alone, the calamitous weather conditions have caused at least 20 people died and more than 132 injuries. 10 more persons have also been injured in different areas of Punjab.
According to Director General Rescue 1122, at least 12 individuals died in Bannu, 3 in Lakki Marwat, and 4 in Kirk.
He added that the wind and storm in these places caused the injuries of more than 64 people and that the majority of the accidents occurred brought on by the collapse of walls and roofs.
Additionally, a young girl from Paharpur in DI Khan died due to a tree falling during the storm.
Bannu was particularly badly damaged, with storms and rain causing significant harm. 106 people were shockingly injured in the area, including women and children, and authorities are worried that the death toll may increase.
Walls, roofs, and trees collapsing caused the terrible deaths and injuries. Since the bulk of the victims are children, all hospitals have put emergency procedures in place in response to the grave situation.
Furthermore, the extensive damage has been made worse by the subsequent flooding caused by heavy rain, which has turned streets and roads into impromptu ponds.
Many places are in the dark as a result of a disruption in the electric supply.
A team of top provincial officials will visit the affected districts tomorrow on the express direction of Caretaker KPK Chief Minister Muhammad Azam Khan.
The chief secretary and two caretaker ministers from the southern districts are going to make out the government team. The crew will evaluate the relief efforts and damage in Bannu and Lakki Marwat.
The team will provide the essential guidance for the relief operations to the respective district and divisional authorities.
Tragically, seven people, including three children and a woman, perished in the Lakki Marwat and Kirk districts as a result of crumbling walls brought on by the constant downpour.
The Tehsil Hospital has received 26 more injured patients who require immediate medical care.
Rivers and canals in Mingora City and the neighboring villages of Swat have overflowed as a result of the heavy rain, aggravating an already severe situation.
Hailstorms were also experienced in several areas, escalating the damage brought on by the extreme weather.
Seven persons in Gujranwala were hurt as a result of numerous accidents that occurred as a result of the severe rain.
Three people were hurt when the shed of a steel factory on Aymanabad Road collapsed over workers as a result of the wind.
Seven people were also hurt when roofs collapsed in Dhale and Gondanwala, including a scrap warehouse in Dhale.
The roof of their home collapsed, injuring three more individuals, while a similar event in Gondanwala village resulted in four injuries.
To help individuals impacted by the severe weather events, local authorities, rescue services, and disaster management teams are working nonstop.
In addition to addressing the urgent needs of the impacted populace, efforts are being made to restore electricity and give medical assistance.
In several districts of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, rain caused the loss of precious lives. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif expressed grief and remorse over this and sent his condolences to the families of the deceased.
He instructed the K-P chief minister to work with the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) to provide aid and rehabilitation in the afflicted districts.
