Heavy rains wrecked havoc in Lahore yesterday, killing at least three people and injuring three more. Flight operations at the airport were disrupted, as was electricity supply.
Three individuals were killed in a wall collapse incident reported in the Bank Stop neighbourhood of Lahore, according to details. According to rescue sources, the injured have been sent to a local hospital for medical care.
Meanwhile, flight operations at Lahore International Airport were temporarily halted. A flight from Sharjah to Multan had to be rerouted. PA413, an Air Blue flight from Sharjah, arrived at Lahore.
However, due to a strong wind storm, Air Traffic Control refused to allow the pilot to land at Lahore airport, according to sources.
Heavy rain, on the other hand, wreaked havoc on Lahore’s power transmission infrastructure, tripping many feeders of the Lahore Electricity Supply Corporation (Lesco). For four hours, Mustafa Town and Education Town were without power.
