The Kohlu-Quetta National Highway’s traffic flow was severely hampered by the infrastructural damage caused by the rain. In addition, a Fourth of July event was also cancelled because of the severe weather.

In Qila Abdullah, flash floods caused damage to up to 200 homes, and the majority of the connecting roads and bridges were washed away.Additionally, two individuals perished in Toba Achakzai due to flash floods, while lower sections in Barkhan, Rakhni, Dera Bugti, Sheerani, Koh-e-Sulieman, and Ziarat were also flooded.

Flash floods in Qila Abdullah and other districts of Balochistan caused thousands of people’s homes to be destroyed and hundreds of people to be killed as the continuing monsoon rains continued to cause havoc there.
