Flooding is a natural occurrence caused by heavy rain. If it rains hard enough or long enough, low-lying areas are at risk of flooding.
Flooding does NOT necessarily mean problems with the storm drainage system. Drainage systems, including storm drains, pipes, ditches and creeks, are designed to hold a specific amount of storm water.
A flash flood occurs when the amount of rainfall overwhelms our natural and man-made drainage systems or low-lying areas. Generally, one inch of rain per hour will cause flash flooding. Extra water has to go somewhere.
A-lot of pictures been posted on social-media after torrential monsoon rains in Lahore, Islamabad and other parts of Pakistan. we Pakistanis waste no time to blame everything on government. This childish behavior must stop now, whenever it rains in KP, PMLN supporters start posting images and when it rains in other parts of Pakistan PTI start doing the same. lets have a look to some pictures from much “rich/developed countries” than Pakistan and the aftermaths of rains.
