KP cyclone third deadliest in Pakistan’s history: Met office

ISLAMABAD: The Meteorological Office of Pakistan has said that yesterday what the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) witnessed was a ‘mini-cyclone’ and third most dangerous storm of Pakistan’s history, ARY News reported.

In the past, two such rainstorms had also caused havoc in Sialkot and Sargodha.

The Met Office declared Sunday’s rainstorm to be third largest cyclone Pakistan ever witnessed. It is also worth noting that all these cyclones hit the country in the month of April, when the summers start.

Witnessing the devastating storm in KP, it can easily be assessed that the ecology in Pakistan is gradually changing and the major reasons for it are chopping of forests and rapidly increasing air pollution.

Yesterday, a massive rainstorm hit parts of KP resulting in 45 casualties. Over 200 people were injured which led to an emergency in affected areas.

Winds ran as high as 110 km/hr blowing roofs off several houses and uprooting trees and poles in Peshawar, Charsadda, Nowshera and other areas, followed by heavy rains.
