Flood torrents entered Jacobabad city on Saturday after wreaking havoc in the upper parts of the country. Earlier, the district administration of Jacobabad tried to divert the flood torrent towards Jaffarabad and other areas of Balochistan by damaging the Sindh-Balochistan Bypass. But the work was halted due to the protest of the Jaffarabad District Administration. Floods are also posing a threat to more than 2,400 villages of Kacha area in Sindh. The army, navy, Rangers and the district administration have completed evacuation of more than 500,000 people from the threatened areas. Around 714 relief camps have been set up in 16 districts, including Sukkur, Ghotki, Dadu, Larkana and Thatta, while the government has reserved Rs25 million for providing relief to more than 900,000 people in the threatened areas. Chief Minister Sindh Qaim Ali Shah called for joint efforts in facing the challenge of devastating floods across the country.
