Heavy rains on Monday and Tuesday have caused flooding across several Karachi roads and motorways, and a four-kilometre section of the M9 motorway that connects Karachi to Hyderabad has now been closed for traffic.

Only one side of the motorway is being used currently, according to the motorway authorities, with the traffic being diverted to Saadi Town.

Pakistan Army has sent its team to rescue people stuck on the motorway and army personnel have had even to resort to using boats to reach people.

People living in Shahbaz Goth have complained that rainwater has entered their homes but they have not yet been provided any help.

Water stored in the Lath Dam, situated on the city's suburbs, started overflowing in the wake of monsoon downpours. It inundated three goths in Gadap Town.

The floodwater was heading towards the Saadi Town area.
