Although water levels have dropped in River Sutlej and River Chenab, same is not the situation in River Indus which has wreaked havoc in Sindh following torrential monsoon rains coupled with water released by India into rivers on Sunday.
Road connection between 70 villages of Pir Jo Goth and Gambat was severed after mighty Indus burst its banks and inundated katcha area of Khairpur, Sindh.
Water levels have increased by 17,000 cusecs and 10,000 cusecs at Guddu and Sukkur barrages, respectively.
The situation is threatening in Rajanpur in Punjab as well where after heavy rains over the mountains of Kohe Suleman, water has entered western parts of the district.
According to the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), River Indus is in high flood in Thatta, Sindh while extremely high flood is expected in the river at Taunsa.
There is high flood in River Indus at Guddu Barrage. Water inflow in the river has been recorded at over 467,000 cusecs while the discharge at over 450,000 cusecs.
According to the Control Room, water level in the river increased by 57, 000 cusecs during the last 24 hours while 100,000 cusecs of more water is expected during the next 24 to 48 hours.
A breach in a temporary protective embankment on the River Sutlej in Dullah Akko area of Chishtian tehsil, Bahawalnagar district, Pakistan, on Saturday caused flooding of nearby settlements.
The extra ordinary flow of water caused the breach, which disrupted the road network leading to several settlements. Floodwater entered the low-lying neighbourhoods, causing difficulties for the native residents.
Rescue teams have been deployed to the area to evacuate stranded people and provide relief. The authorities have also warned people living in low-lying areas to remain vigilant as the water levels are expected to rise further.
The breach is the latest in a series of flooding incidents in Pakistan this year. In June, heavy rains caused widespread flooding in the country, displacing hundreds of thousands of people.
