Downpour Lashes Several Parts Of Balochistan

Numerous Areas of Balochistan Have Experienced Monsoon

Over the past 24 hours, numerous areas of Balochistan have experienced monsoon rains with strong winds, resulting in at least 20 deaths in rain-related accidents. 

Officials reported that six women from the same family in Quetta were among the fatalities. Rain and heavy winds caused the wall of the women’s temporary home to fall, killing them. 

Two women reportedly died from their injuries since there were no plans to take them to a hospital, according to their family members. The family travelled to Quetta for the summer; they are from the Balochistan region of Jaffarabad.
