Meanwhile, Minister for Climate Change Sherry Rehman said that unstable weather systems and sporadic urban flooding could be expected from Kashmir to Karachi in the upcoming days.

“A special advisory for Balochistan and coastal areas has also been issued. The fisherfolk community needs to be alerted to the possibility of choppy seas and extreme weather, especially off Ormara, Pasni, and Gwadar,” she tweeted.

In the case of local floods, the climate change minister recommended provinces to take preventative steps such as cleaning storm drains, ensuring the integrity of power poles, and ensuring road access. “Especially where flood damage from the 2022 floods is still being repaired,” she noted.

From May 1 to May 4, severe rains may produce flash floods in Mansehra, Abbottabad, Chitral, Dir, Swat, Kohistan, Gilgit-Baltistan, and Kashmir, according to Rehman.
