PDMA forecasts heavy rainfall in May

The Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) has issued a forecast indicating a forthcoming spell of rainfall for this month. According to a spokesperson, moderate rainfall is anticipated in northern Punjab, with lighter showers expected in other regions.

In light of this forecast, the PDMA has urged farmers in the Potohar region to take necessary precautions to protect their wheat crops. Additionally, they have warned of potential dust and hailstorms due to the approaching westerly system, which could endanger crops and structures. Moreover, the authority has highlighted the risk of landslides in mountainous areas as another concern.
