PMD forecasts extended summer

The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has on Thursday prognosticated a long summer period in the country this year.

According to the PMD, the maximum temperature in Pakistan for the month of March will reach up to 37 degree Celsius.

An intense heatstroke is a serious threat for citizens. The met office also added that the months-long Summer will come into effect while winters have become short in the country.

The scorching sun raises have apparently affected the lives of Pakistanis since 2015, forcing them to stay indoors.

Hitting the severe hot weather in June 2015, Karachi’s weather had risen to 49°C and also affected its adjoining areas.

It caused the deaths of about 2,000 people from dehydration and heatstroke.

However, heatstroke has become quite a common part of the summer in this region.

Earlier, the federal government of Pakistan had approved an additional 400 megawatts of electricity to Karachi in a bid to ensure the port city does not suffer long power outages in the Summer season.

The sources had confirmed that the session approved 1,200MW to Karachi post-April instead of a present supply of 800MW, however, the agreement for the development of additional power supply has yet to be penned.

In the next two years, Karachi will receive an extra 1400 MG energy to offset the deficit.
