LAHORE - Met Office has predicted that Punjab and Khyber Paktunkhwa would experience widespread heavy rain, flash flood and urban flooding due to Phet tropical cyclone which has since hit Karachi coastal areas. However, the rain in Punjab and Khyber Paktunkhwa would be result of South Westerly winds, which have already lashed the areas and these may further intensify during the next 24 hours. The westerly winds are originated from Mediterranean Sea against the Phet, which came from Arabian Sea. That mean both the Mediterranean and Arabian Sea are witnessing unusual activity. The westerly may persist for two days. Meanwhile the Phet is wreaking havoc in the Sindh interior and even Bahawalpur, DG Khan and Sadiqabad districts, which have been engulfed by thick black clouds and strong winds. Lahore and central Punjab were also covered with clouds and gusty windstorm blowing at 30km per hour. However, due to sunshine and dry weather earlier in the day, the temperature registered an upward trend for at least 3 degree centigrade as compared to 37 c on Saturday. The Met office said that Phet cyclone has moved eastward along Makran coast and was heading at a speed of 12 kilometer per hour to make landfall at Karachi coast and was away at 65 kilometer by 9 pm. JI leaders directed to gear up for relief work Secretary General Jamaat-e-Islami Liaquat Baloch on Sunday directed the JI party presidents of Karachi and Balochistan to gear up their relief activities for the cyclone affected people in Karachi and Gowadar. Liaquat Baloch contacted the JI chiefs in Karachi and Balochistan to discuss with the situation arising out of the cyclone on the Karachi and Balochistan shore besides the relief activities for the affected people.
