The fast-moving waters that left the low-lying town of Sajawal submerged on Sunday were now threatening the towns of Jati and Choohar Jamali, where official warnings have been issued to residents to evacuate. The floodwaters also submerged Gaji Khuhawar, a town of 50,000 population in Warrah besides more than 100 villages in District Qamber-Shahdadkot and Mehar, KN Shah and Johi talukas of District Dadu while the administration has sounded a red alert in Johi against the inundation. Floodwaters, flowing from Qamber-Shahdadkot and Qubo Saeed Khan, inundated several towns and villages and standing crops. The embankments of FP levee along the RBOD and Main Nara Valley Drain from Shahdadkot towards District Dadu via Warrah, Nasirabad, Mehar Talukas were under constant floodwaters pressure. Several breaches have been reported over the last two days in Qamber-Shahdakot and Dadu districts.

On Monday, dozens of flood affectees including women and children reached Larkana DCO Office and forced their entry into the DCO office and meeting/conference room. They staged a sit-in there for hours, demanding relief items and registration of genuine affected people. Staff of the DCO office ran away in haste to escape wrath of the protesters.

They, however, said that though the weather could not be predicted due to changing global warming, but cautioned people to be mentally prepared for super floods, which will persist during next four to five years. Dharejo said that regulators of the majority canals and distributaries had been washed away or wiped out due to pressure of floodwaters. He said the flood situation will persist for next 15 days below Kotri downstream. He further said that rehabilitation of the displaced people was a gigantic challenge, hoping that rehabilitation process will completed within five to six months smoothly.

Sindh government spokesman Jameel Soomro told AFP that 147 people had been killed in the province, mostly as a result of disease triggered by the floods, and mostly women and children.
