Sehwan and Bhan Saeedabad still under threat as water level in Manchar lake shoots up.


Express September 21, 2010

The water level at Manchar Lake has shot up to a reading of 120 Reduced Level (RL) after a heavy influx from the Hamal Lake and Main Naran Valley drain.

The areas of Sehwan and Bhan Saeedabad are still under threat of possible flooding.

Residents of the two areas are packing up their belongings and moving to higher ground.

Meanwhile, the land route connecting the city of Johi with the other adjacent areas has been disconnected for the last 15 days. However, the water level in Khairpur Nathan has receded to seven inches.

Meanwhile, life has returned to normalcy in Sujawal after water receded from 80 per cent of the area, and efforts are under way to fill Kot Almo breach.

The irrigation department has so far managed to fill the Kot Almo breach up to 120 feet.

Flood survivors have started returning to their homes in the city but are facing acute water shortage. Low-lying areas are still submerged under 1 to 2 feet of water.
