It was the third spell of rain this week to lash the city plagued with rickety infrastructure.
Rain was reported in the port city’s Saddar, Clifton, Defense Housing Authority (DHA), PECHS, Landhi, Korangi and adjoining areas. There were also reports of cloud bursts over Tin Hatti, Nishtar Road, Lasbela, Garden East, Golimar and Soldier Bazaar.
Today, the city’s southern areas received heavy to at times very heavy rainfall, unlike previous days as the rain system entered the city from the sea-facing areas.
