FFD issues a flood warning for the Chenab and Ravi rivers

According to the Flood Forecasting Division, a medium flood is likely in the Chenab and Ravi rivers within the next three days due to significant catchment areas.

According to FFD, the river Indus flows at 2,73,000 cusecs at Tarbela Dam, while the water flow at Maralla headworks has risen to 1,08000 cusecs.

According to the flood forecasting authority, the Jhelum river had a water flow of 45,000 cusecs in Mangla, while the Ravi had a flow of 36,00 cusecs at Shahdara.

It is worth noting that Islamabad endured disastrous rainfall last night due to a cloudburst, with up to 330 mm of rain falling on Pakistan’s capital city. The FFD had previously warned of high to very high floods in the Jhelum and Chenab rivers in late July. The flood warning issued by the FFD stated that the water flow in the Jhelum River at upstream Mangla could increase to a high to very high flood level from July 28 to 30.
