Twelve People In Balochistan Lost Lives Due To Heavy Rainfall

Monsoon rainfall and floods began to cause havoc in Balochistan on Monday, killing 12 additional people in the Musakhail and Washuk districts.

A dam in the Musakhail region was swept down by floods. Two Levies personnel were killed in a flash flood while driving back from Washuk. The bodies were discovered later.

Train service between Quetta and the rest of Pakistan has been halted because the major line connecting Sibi and Dera Murad Jamali was swept away by the flood.

According to authorities, heavy rain has been falling in Zhob, Kohlu, Musakhail, Nasirabad, Dera Bugti, Washuk, Barkhan, Sibi, and Harnai regions since Sunday afternoon. Floodwaters in annual rivers and streams wiped away many towns and drove hundreds of residents from their homes in Musakhail.

According to the Musakhail deputy commissioner, around 12 persons were washed away in floodwaters following the failure of the Andarpose dam. Rescue personnel had retrieved eight dead thus far, he added. Two children were murdered in the Rarasham region when their house’s roof collapsed in.

According to authorities, Musakhail’s road network and communication system have been severely impacted, and the district’s electricity supply has been halted. A hamlet in Tilli tehsil was submerged owing to a break in a protective dike, forcing residents to flee their houses.

“Another protective dike was breached, affecting Mal Ghshkori and Hambi villages,” the Sibi deputy commissioner told Dawn, noting that 60 buildings were destroyed in the two towns.

Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo presided over a meeting to review the flood situation, saying the entire province was in a serious situation as monsoon downpours and flash floods caused huge damage almost in all 34 municipalities, wiping away dams, bridges, and road structures, as well as high human failures.

Through video link, the chief minister joined a meeting of the Relief Coordination Committee in Islamabad, which was led by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. Mr Bizenjo updated the group on the destruction caused by floods, stating that the whole region was hit by this catastrophic tragedy.
