In the Sonari area of Balochistan’s Kohlu, the road connecting the locality to Quetta had been swept away by flooding and several bridges were damaged, the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) said in a statement on Tuesday.

Floods had also swept away electricity poles in Kohlu and the downpour in Barkhan damaged crops.
