KARACHI: As the rainy season approaches, Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) held an Emergency Rain session on Wednesday to devise a plan to avoid submerging roads and cities from flooding and blockage of sewers in port cities as happened last year, ARY News reported.
According to details of today’s session, the crowd was considering ways to avoid water buildup on underpasses and roads in the middle of the monsoon season, as Karachi administrators instructed precautions to be taken to avoid unwanted incidents in the heavy rainy season.
Keep all water pumps on standby, the administrator said advising them to clear roads when they are inundated.
The administrator has also directed the technician concerned to carry out a survey in a steep, descending area that is likely to be flooded if it rains.
Responding to an administrator’s direction, officials confirmed that the city currently has 17 drainage pumps, and he replied that all of them are being used to clear water-filled roads.
Administrators said a strategy needed to be in place to avoid the flooding raging onto the underground roads and to hire as many mechanics as possible to ensure the work was accelerated.
Another set of directives is to clear clogged rainwater drains with a focus on areas that have been severely affected in the past.

MetService predicts that the incoming vanguard will bring rain or rain to the South Island today – but the ridge will stick to the North Island, keeping most of the weather calm there.

The cool autumn weather will be replaced by gray skies, heavy rain, and rain.
On Monday, in the North Island, rain or heavy rain will develop throughout the day.
On the South Island there will be rain to the west of the ravine. It will be cloudy with some torrential downpours around Southland and Otago, spreading into the interior of Canterbury in the late afternoon.

Further south there will be clouds and heavy rain isolated around Kapiti and Wellington and partly cloudy elsewhere.
The South Island will be mostly cloudy with rainfall, although more waterfalls are isolated from Christchurch to Marlborough and Nelson.
Forecasters say a period of rain or rain will affect much of the country on Wednesday, possibly heavy around the east of the Bay of Plenty.
Yesterday, the whole country was under the influence of the northern sect.
The highest maximum recorded was 28C in Whanganui, while the coolest spot was Invercargill, which hit just 18C.
A front brings rain or rain to the South Island tomorrow, while a ridge against the North Island keeps the weather mostly settled there. A north wind between high & forward means warm temperatures, especially in the east https://t.co/Yjbq0jxdqz ^ PL pic.twitter.com/f5hMmrWjpY
