The met office also predicted a drop in temperature after December 10.

In July, at least 10 people died of electrocution on a day of incessant rainfall in Karachi and other parts of Sindh that resulted in power outages and brought life to a standstill.

Major parts of the city faced prolonged outages while rainwater accumulated on key thoroughfares affected traffic and commute, with nearby Hyderabad and other cities in the province experiencing similar problems.
