The National Weather Forecasting Centre announced that heavy rains that began in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province Wednesday, March 4, were expected to continue on Wednesday, March 11, through Friday, March 13. The severe weather and associated flooding have killed 33 people and injured dozens more, as well as damaged over 140 properties. Some roads in Peshawar and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa remain closed.

Avoid walking or driving through floodwaters; 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
