NDMA Chairman's Exclusive Interview on Flood Situation
July 25, 2015

National Disaster Management Authority has cautioned of possible medium level flooding in different parts of the country during the next four-five days.

In an exclusive interview with Radio Pakistan's Current Affairs Channel, Chairman NDMA Major General Asghar Nawaz said the flooding situation could be similar to the one witnessed recently.

He said there was average rainfall forecast during monsoon but it is higher in northern Punjab, KPK and Azad Kashmir. He said more rainfall in catchment areas could result in flash floods in some areas in this belt.

NDMA Chairman said flood water is now crossing Punjab and entering Sindh, but it is unlikely to cause major damages there due to spread of the river.
