This has led people to conclude that Karachi and rain kinda sorta don’t gel too well.
Chill out Karachi, I don't think you can handle all this rain.

Khair, the Met Department has gone on to talk about how Karachi walay should prepare for some more heavy rainfall. In fact, flood warning bhi mil chuki hai.
Moreover, the National Disaster Management (NDMA) sent out texts warning everyone to stay safe.
I mean, it’s great that they’re looking out for us, but haye. Kitna bura haal honay wala hai?!
