According to officials, the Pakistan Army and Navy helped the government in the Oraki region of the Lasbela district rescue over twenty people to safety, including women and children. Rohana Kakar, the assistant deputy commissioner of Lasbela, stated that after saving the victims from the floodwaters, “We have moved these folks to a safe spot.”
Bodies Being Washed Away in Floods
The body of a man who went missing after being washed away in flash floods two days ago near Noshki was discovered on Sunday, according to the authorities. Mirza Khan was the name of the individual. Another child’s body was pulled from floodwaters close to the Zhob neighbourhood.
Heavy rains in the Zhob area caused a considerable number of buildings to collapse, displacing residents.
Since a result of bridge collapses and roads being washed away, Awaran’s flood situation has gotten worse as the district as a whole has been cut off from the rest of Balochistan for the past four days.
