Gwadar city submerged: Torrential rains wreak havoc in coastal Balochistan

The Balochistan province, including its capital Quetta, is currently experiencing intermittent rainfall, as predicted by the Meteorological Department. However, the situation has taken a turn for the worse in certain areas, particularly in Gwadar, where heavy downpours have led to flooding and subsequent disruptions.

Torrential downpours on the morning of February 27th triggered a flood situation in Gwadar, submerging several areas, including Gwadar city and Sarabandan. The Commissioner of Makran confirmed heavy rain lasting for nine hours in Gwadar, leading to collapsed walls and settlements around Jinnah Avenue inundated with water.

The heavy rainfall prompted the postponement of matriculation exams in the Gwadar district, highlighting the disruption caused by the weather event.

According to the Meteorological Department, rain has been recorded across various locations in Balochistan, with Gwadar receiving the highest amount at 58 millimeters. Other areas like Quetta, Dalbandin, Khuzdar, and Turbat also experienced varying degrees of rainfall.

The department further predicts that the current weather system will bring continued rain in northern Balochistan and coastal areas until February 28th evening. This will be followed by the arrival of a new system on February 29th, triggering heavy rain across various parts of the province until March 2nd.
