A man was killed after a tree fell on him during a storm that hit Rawalpindi and Islamabad Thursday night.

A tree fell on him near the Rawal Lake.

The sandstorm and rain that hit the joint cities led to several signboards and trees falling down.

Widespread blackouts were also reported as 320 IESCO feeders tripped. Jhelum, Chakwal, Attock, Rawalpindi and Islamabad were all without power.

IESCO officials have said that wires have broken due to the storm, causing electricity supply to be suspended.
