KARACHI: After a very long time Karachi has seen heavy rainfall and it is not over yet. More rainfall is expected in the rural Sindh including Sukkur, Larkana, Mirpurkhas, Hyderabad divisions.
The Met office has predicted rainfall in Karachi for the next three days till Wednesday. Until now 120 Milliliter rainfall has been recorded in Karachi. As this weather is not a usual occurrence for people living in Karachi, it might get difficult for people to step out of their houses. Here are four things that you can keep in mind while going out on a rainy day.
Stay away from light color clothes
It will be best if you stay away from light color cloths. Wear dark clothes which would not get transparent in the rain.
Keep a watchful eye
After rainfall, Karachi becomes a swimming pool. Better to keep a watchful eye for any electricity wires dropped in a puddle of water.
Wear covered shoes
It will not only keep your feet safe but it will be easy to move around in these shoes. It will also protect you against slipping on the road.
Leave home early but drive slowly as due to the wet road there are clear chances of your vehicle slipping. Drizzling is much more dangerous than rainfall as it brings out the remnants of lubricants absorbed in the road over the surface which is not visible to the drivers, but it can result in a deadly accident.
