Another testing time for Karachiites, as heavy rain lashed Karachi and its major parts on Thursday, roads, underpasses left submerged in over flooded in water.
On the other hand, The MA Jinnah from Gurumandir to Numaish Chowrangi has been closed for all kind of traffic.
Heavy rainfall is currently lashing the city, resulting in a massive traffic jam in parts of the city due to flooded roads. A massive traffic jam was witnessed at the Jam Sadiq Bridge and Qayyumabad Chowrangi due to closure of Korangi Causeway Road.
The rainwater has gathered outside Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) building and surrounding roads.
Amid the current spell, several roads in Surjani Town, Yousaf Goth, Abdul Raheem Goth and Dada Bhai Town are still submerged in the water.
In its new alert, the Meteorological Department redacted its earlier rain prediction that heavy showers in the city could last until 4pm, saying that now it would last till 11pm.
Rainwater inundated KPT underpass that connects Do Talwar to Teen Talwar at Clifton, while the same situation was observed with the underpass near Punjab Colony.
In a video that circulates online, containers brought for security measures in Muharram could be seen floating in water.

Due to the hassle at the two main underpasses, the flow of traffic was disrupted as traffic officials urged the public to use alternate routes.
On the other hand, Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Ali Zaidi took to Twitter to share a video clip in which cars were seen to be driving around in the city’s DHA Phase 6 area in over flooded water.
This is DHA Phase 6 Karachi. What is happening in the low lying areas of KHI today is devastating yet once again.
Testing times for Karachiites yet again!
