Friday, September 09, 2011

THATTA: Epidemics including gastro diseases are playing havoc posing serious troubles for the people already distressed by wide-scale devastation heaped by lashing rains and flooding in interior Sindh.

Badin is among the worst areas, where houses were inundated with people taking shelter by roadsides. Pak Army jawans rescued several marooned people aboard boats.

Badin’s tehsil of Golarchi is destroyed with the displaced people relocating to safer locations and waiting for relief efforts.

Moro’s government degree girls’ college is closed; several houses collapsed here. Citizens protested against lack of drainage of rainwater.

People came up with temporary arrangement to check water from entering Noushehro Feroz; however, the water could not be stopped.

Evacuation from flooded Nawabshah is underway. People protested for not receiving relief in Thatta and closed Badin-Sajawal Highway by staging a sit-in at Jati Chowk.

Innumerable houses collapsed in Dadu, where people are bracing up against weather conditions under open skies. Flood-hit victims demanded the government to immediately provide relief goods.
