Lahore in Rain

Pakistan has been lashed with heavy downpour, floods and storms across its coastal areas, Karachi, Makran, NWFP and parts of the Punjab for the last few days. Hundreds have lost their lives while thousands are stranded as a result of continous heavy downpour.

Two day-fulls of rain has left Lahore with a bit of pleasant weather, increased humidity and puddles of rain water all over its streets.

    It’s just the beginning. Heavy showers are predicted throughout Pakistan which will cause further havoc in Baluchistan and NWFP… God bless us!
