Two die in rain-related incidents in KP: PDMA


PESHAWAR: Two children died and six others received injuries during the latest spell of monsoon rains across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), said the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) on Tuesday.
According to statistics issued by the PDMA, two children lost their lives in Shangla in rain-related incidents. Seven houses were partially damaged. The local administrations have been asked to compile data of the losses due to recent monsoon spells in the province.
The PDMA further stated that efforts are under way to reopen block roads due to landsliding. The authority is in contact with all district administrations and the PDMA’s emergency operation centre is also fully functional, it added.
Heavy rains continue to lash parts of KP, triggering flash floods in several areas of the province.
It is pertinent to mention here that nine people, including two children, died in three separate incidents caused by recent rains in Punjab. At least 21 people have been killed in rain-related incidents in Karachi during the fresh spell of monsoon that started on Thursday and broke a 90-year-old, playing havoc with the city’s ill-maintained infrastructure.
