More landslides are expected as the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) predicted rains and thunderstorms with strong winds from Monday (today) in upper parts of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Federally Administered Tribal Areas. A landslide warning has been issued in the upper parts of the province.
An official of the met department told The Express Tribune Malakand and Hazara divisions were among the areas that could be affected by the deluge along with Gilgit-Baltistan and Fata.
He added the weather system is likely to end in Peshawar, but heavy rain is expected in Malakand and Hazara divisions on Monday.
“We have recorded one millimetre of rainfall in Peshawar [on Sunday], but it is still raining,” said an official of the department on duty.
PMD Peshawar Regional Director Mushtaq Shah said the existing weather system is already weakening and was expected to come to an end by Monday night.
