Monsoon Rains Hit Karachi Causing Floods and Deaths

Monsoon rains have poured down on Pakistan’s financial capital of Karachi for the fifth straight night, wreaking havoc, flooding more areas and killing about 20 people, officials said Friday.

Troops continued to evacuate people from flooded neighborhoods to safer places.

About 30 inches of rain have fallen in the city since Sunday, forcing authorities to use boats to move people trapped in flooded streets.

Technical faults and downed wires also caused widespread power outages, adding misery to the lives of residents in the country’s largest city of 15 million people.
