Here is how people are reacting on social media

Yes, Karachi needs more trees to overcome the extremely hot temperature.

As people are left with no choice.

65 dead, yet nothing has been done.

Karachi needs rain.

People are doing whatever they can in this desperate situation

Karachi is in need of water.

Tree, rain and some miracle. As the whole nation prays for the people of Karachi

Karachi really needs a billion tree tsunami project just like in KPK. Deforestation to build commercial and residential areas is killing the humanity. Infrastructure at the cost of people is damaging the City of Lights.

This is what the Karachiites feel.

The City of Lights is on Fire.

Ramadan, fast and the unbearable weather of Karachi. Let’s hope that the temperature will fall down in the city.

Women, men, children working & fasting in this heatwave.

Heat Wave warning was issued by the Met Office a few days back. It was predicted that for the next six days day temperature in Karachi will remain in between 40-43⁰C. And today due to this heatwave 65 people have lost their lives in Karachi. Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) did sent the information to all concerned departments clearly stating that for the next 5 to 6 days temperature will rise in Karachi. But it seems that no precautionary measure were taken.
