Fresh flood alert for upper Sindh

ISLAMABAD (Agencies) – Due to high flow of water in Indus River, upper Sindh towns including ShahdadKot, Sajawal, Ratodero and Qabo Saeed Khan have been declared red zone.

Floods have turned their directions towards Keerthar Canal in Jacobabad after water was seen flowing backwards due to destruction of gates located at Karang Regulator near Shahdadkot, reported a private TV channel.

DCO Shahdadkot ordered evacuation of 150 villages including Qabo Saeed Khan on emergency basis after the district was alerted against potential flooding.

A massive flood is marching towards Larkana and Khairpur districts after a huge crack was developed in under-construction security bund, aimed at turning direction of River Indus away from population in both the districts. The residents of 2 villages near Jhirik, Rajoo Nizamani and Tando Hafiz Shah of katcha areas in Thatta district have been warned to evacuate towards safer places in view of the expected super flood to pass from here this week.
