Rainwater enters Parliament House in Islamabad; Lahore, Peshawar drenched


Rainwater has entered Parliament House as heavy monsoon showers constantly on Monday.
Heavy rain has converted most roads in the capital city into canals where routine life has been disturbed badly by the rapidly flowing rainwater.
All meetings at Parliament House were cancelled as rainwater has entered many committee rooms and was constantly filling other areas as well.
Seeing no break in the ongoing heavy rain showers in the twin cities, authorities have put all rescue agencies on high alert to control all types of emergency situations in Islamabad and Rawalpindi.
Rainwater accumulated at low lying areas in Lahore and Peshawar after the heavy shower on Monday.
Heavy rain hit Lahore and its suburbs on Monday morning which gave relief to the citizens from hot and humid weather.
However, rainwater accumulated in the low lying areas. The heavy showers also created traffic problems in the city as roads submerged under water after the rain.
Peshawar also received heavy rains and water accumulated in some areas. The rain has broken the intensity of hot weather.
According to Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) the recent rain spell will continue for the next 24 hours.
