The Sindh administration has decided to declare Monday a public holiday for the Karachi and Hyderabad divisions due to the province’s widespread, heavy rain that has been falling since Saturday night.

According to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), Karachi could experience strong winds and up to 200 millimetres of rain on Sunday. Everyone has been told to stay inside as much as possible.

In addition to Scheme 33, Federal B Area, North Karachi, New Karachi, Nazimabad, Muhammad Ali Society, Bahadurabad, PIB Colony, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Gulistan-e-Johar, PECHS, and surrounding neighbourhoods, the rainstorm is still occurring throughout the city.Public Holiday in Karachi and Hyderabad on 25 July

Low-lying sections in the city have been flooded as a result of the city’s constant rain, putting its residents in serious danger and making it difficult for ambulances to reach various regions.

According to representatives of the Met Department, Karachi and the rest of Sindh may continue to see rain through Tuesday.

“Due to heavy rainfall which is expected to continue even tomorrow, #SindhGovt has decided to declare Monday, the 25th of July as a public holiday in Karachi & Hyderabad Divisions,” Karachi Administrator Murtaza Wahab Siddiqui wrote on his official Twitter handle.

He said that a notification in this regard is being issued.

“It’s been raining nonstop since early morning & severity of rainfall has increased in the last hour or so,” Murtaza said in another tweet.
