QUETTA: One dead, 10 injured and at least 50 families homeless due to a heavy hailstorm in Balochistan.

Electricity, being the first casualty of rain, was missing along with breakdown of sewerage system and disruption in traffic on roads and highways on day two of the wet spell.

“A man was killed and ten wounded when a passenger van was washed away by flash-floods in Mach Town of Bolan district,” Home Minister Sarfraz Bugti told reporters in Quetta. “More than 50 families were rendered homeless when torrents washed away their mud houses,” he said.

The Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) and Pakistan Army are on high alert to deal with any situation developed after the heavy rains in plains and snowfall on mountains, the minister said. Bugti said that urgent relief items including tents and food have been dispatched to the affected areas.
