A terrible dust storm accompanied by heavy rain lashed the twin cities last night uprooting many trees on various roads and electricity polls. A man reportedly lost his life when a tree fell on him near Rawal Lake and many were injured in the process.
The storm not only caused harm to the public but also destroyed private property including cars, windows, glass doors and more. Around 300 feeders of IESCO also tripped cutting down the electricity supply to the city.
Despite all this destruction, the brave policemen of Islamabad Police and Islamabad Traffic Police kept performing their duties. The policemen performed their duties by guiding people on the road and helping them.
The police also helped removed several trees that were uprooted to make way for traffic. In this heavy storm when everyone was hoping to get home safe, these policemen served as inspiration and showed that they are always available to help the public in times like these.
The Met department has said that the weather is expected to improve within 24 hours but there is still some rain expected in areas of the twin cities.
