Rain Spell Continues

View From Rawal Lake.jpgThe current spell of rain that has lashed Islamabad and Rawalpindi since Friday is unlikely to be broken for another 48 hours, a Met official said on Sunday.

The residents of Rawalpindi and Islamabad have had to cope with pouring rain for almost three days now and because of this most of them had to remain indoors. But those who did venture out were not troubled by traffic, which remained particularly thin. The maximum rainfall recorded in Rawalpindi was 100mm while in Islamabad it was measured at 50mm. There were reports of snowfall on Murree Hills and adjoining areas that blocked roads at several places.

The Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) deployed two mobile units to help people in trouble because of the rain so if someones vehicle breaks down they can call them for assistance.
