At least 34 people, including children, were killed in separate incidents after incessant rains caused flash floods and lashed various parts of Pakistan, officials said on Tuesday. The torrential rains and thunderstorms in southern Sindh province killed at least 18 people on Monday, mostly from electrocution, as the first spell of monsoon rain wreaked havoc in Karachi, exposing its redundant civic structure, including electricity and sewerage systems. Major parts of Pakistan’s biggest city remained without power till late Monday night. The two districts in the city, central and east, were worst affected. The Pakistan Metrological Department has warned off more heavy rains in the next 24 hours although the rains have stopped in Karachi since Tuesday morning.
