Storm and heavy rain in Islamabad Last night
Islamabad already witnessed strong winds followed by heavy rain and hailstorm in many areas of the city. Social media updates from people show that a few roads and certain areas in Islamabad were flooded with water due to unpredictable heavy rains.
If this happened before the actual strong winds approaching in Islamabad, imagine how bad things could get within the 48 hours. Make sure you stay in your homes as soon as you see the weather getting unusual.
