Pak Navy continues relief operation in flood-hit areas of Balochistan

QUETTA: In the current unprecedented monsoon rain spell, Pakistan Navy continued to provide humanitarian assistance and disaster relief support to the people stranded in flash floods affected areas of Urki, Uthal, Lakhra and other small isolated hutments of Lasbela District.

Pakistan Navy helicopters undertook multiple hops from Uthal to the affected areas to air drop rations near people trapped in their homes. Airdrop of relief goods by helicopters has emerged as the most effective way of providing relief to people who could not be reached as road infrastructure has been wiped away by floods.

During the operation, rations and other necessary equipment were provided in Arki, Athal and Lakhra areas of Lasbela district.

Seven people including the critically ill woman was also taken to a safe place.

Pak Navy is also installing two water filtration plants in the affected areas with the assistance of Hands NG.

Commander Coast Rear Admiral Javed Iqbal supervised the relief activities and also conducted an aerial survey of the affected areas for devising the future action plan.
