The Rain In Karachi Yesterday Led To A Major Electricity Outage And People Are Pissed

By Rameeza Ahmad | 23 Jul, 2019

One drop of rain in Karachi and the entire city shuts down.

It rained in Karachi last night and of course, as usual, the residents of the city were over the moon, since Karachiites are always praying for it to rain but it seldom does rain in the sea-side city.

And of course, as rare and happily expected rain is, as soon as the first drop hits, the ground the entire city’s electricity goes haywire. It’s like the unspoken rule. And as a result, the entire city was immersed in several hours of no electricity.

Everyone was utterly pissed at K-Electric for ruining rain for them

Some people made really dark comparisons which made total sense.

Some just made funny memes to cope.

And other’s just had sage advice for the future.

But people were incredibly angry about the prolonged power outage in several areas of Karachi, and complained on Twitter to K-Electric as well as the government. People want solutions for the future since the entire city is tired of being submerged into darkness on the first hint of rain.

And honestly, in this weather, where even with the rain, there is no reprieve from the heat, it is only fair that Karachiites get this pissed. They shouldn’t have to pick between rain and electricity.

What do you think of everyone’s outrage over the electricity outage? Let us know in the comments below.
