A huge flood of 560,000 cusecs will pass through Kotri Barrage today. The unrelenting water would cause widespread destruction and fatalities in several parts of the nation.

Between Jamshoro and Hyderabad in Sindh, on the Indus River, is Kotri Barrage, where the situation has been dire ever since the flooding began last month.

According to the official, Sukkur Barrage was in a high flood as a result of Taunsa Barrage’s 600,000 cusec water flows into the reservoir.

He insisted that during the previous 24 hours, the reservoir had received an addition of 29,000 cusecs of water.

“All the canals originating from the barrage have been closed for an indefinite amount of time due to the anticipated flood.”He continued

According to the National Disaster Management Authority, nearly 57 people have perished in the past 24 hours as floods continue to wreak havoc on the nation (NDMA).

According to the NDMA, of the total, 38 people died in Sindh alone, 17 in KP, one in Balochistan, and one in AJK.

Over 1,200 people have died as a result of the terrible floods, which have affected millions of people nationwide.

The FFD reported that the level of the River Indus at Guddu and Sukkur is at a high flood level, although it is low at Taunsa and River Kabul at Nowshera.

The FFD also predicted a new westerly wave trough across Northeast Afghanistan and surrounding regions. A weak seasonal low is over Northeast Balochistan and neighbouring regions, it was further said.

According to the division, moderate moist currents from the Arabian Sea are infiltrating higher elevations of the nation at up to 3,000 feet.

The FFD predicted sporadic thunderstorms/rain of moderate intensity with one or two heavy falls over the next 24 hours.

Islamabad, Peshawar, Rawalpindi, and Gujranwala should expect some moderate rainfall, while the Lahore Division should expect a few scattered thunderstorms or showers.
