Unexpected floods have hit Pakistan once more as Balochistan bears the brunt of sporadic rainfall just before spring. The flooded area includes the provincial capital of Quetta but this time, Gwadar has been severely affected.

The flood was prompted by heavy rains on February 27 in Gwadar where the highest amount recorded was 58 millimetres.

According to the Commissioner of Makran, the rain persisted for nine hours while in Gwadar, the duration was more than 16 hours which also impacted the electricity system.


Some of the other areas experiencing rains were Dalbandin, Khuzdar, and Turbat.

It has been forecast that heavy rains will continue across the province until March 2.
