NDMA issues warning to GBDMA, DDMA


Islamabad: In order to prepare for the risk of flash floods, landslides, and gusty winds in the region’s susceptible areas, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has issued orders to the Gilgit-Baltistan DMA (GBDMA) and DDMAs.

Given the weather patterns and rainstorms in Gilgit-Baltistan, these directions were given in response to the Pakistan Meteorological Department’s Glacial Lake Outburst Flood notice.

The GBDMA has been instructed to work with the relevant departments to ensure the pre-planning and arrangement of the essential supplies and equipment, as well as the availability of emergency services personnel at vulnerable places.
