At least 39 people were killed and 135 injured as rain continued to wreak havoc across Pakistan, the National Disaster Management Authority said on Wednesday.
At least 80 houses were damaged as torrential rain lashed Pakistan's Punjab, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) provinces, Geo News reported citing authorities.
Authorities warned of more widespread dust-thunderstorms and rain accompanied by gusty winds in Punjab, Islamabad and KP.
Several children were injured when the wall of a school collapsed in Karachi earlier this week. In a separate incident in the city, several prisoners were injured when a tree fell on a van carrying them.
Rainwater inundated several low-lying houses and roads, disrupting road traffic. Several water drainages also sprang, creating a flash flood in adjoining areas and washing away vehicles and mud houses.
