There is the chance of windstorms damaging loose and weaker structures like billboards, signboards and trees. The advisory said that fishermen should be cautious during this period and the seas are expected to be rough.

According to Sardar Sarfaraz, chief meteorologist between July 1 and July 15, different areas in Sindh will experience monsoon spells and Karachi is expected to experience its second spell on July 7 or July 8. This is expected to continue for three to four days.
Karachi saw an unpredicted pre-monsoon rain on June 23, with showers flooding the roads and areas losing electricity for hours. This also killed four people, including three children.

Before the rains in Karachi, the government of Sindh announced that 90 percent of the city’s 41 big storm drains and 514 tributaries had been unclogged.

Nevertheless, according to Mohammed Sirajuddin, the technical expert leading the Technical Training Resource Centre which has been carrying out surveys along various nullahs, said that the heavy showers would not be prevented from causing urban flooding despite these measures.

He explained that diversions have also been created for the rain water but this is an insufficient measure: “ Even the culverts in the drains have not been cleaned enough and they are still blocked so a heavy downpour in all such areas will result in urban flooding.”
