Earlier the rainfall in Lahore caused the emergence of a massive sinkhole on Lahore Mall Road. A road in Lahore, in front of the General Post Office located on Mall Road, was terribly damaged by the heavy rain and two sinkholes emerged. Many people witnessed this emergence as they were on the road when it happened.
Furthermore, there were similar reports of sinkholes in different areas of Lahore including on Mall Road and on Gulshan-i-Ravi Road near Samanabad Morr. A sinkhole was also found in Gulberg’s Hali Road and reportedly their were such depressions in other parts of Lahore after the heavy rainfall.
Let us hope that the monsoon rain won’t cause any more trouble for the citizens of Lahore.
