Evacuations Ordered As Several Sindh Cities Face New Flood Threat.

Evacuations were ordered as several Sindh cities including Badin and Juhi faced with new flood threat on Sunday.

The destruction caused by floods persisted in Sindh as several cities are reeling from fresh threat of flood while many are still inundated.

A massive torrent of about 600,000 cusecs of floodwater from Indus River has been passing through Mud Mangi near Nawabshah for the past 24 hours.
