It is unknown how many people are directly affected by Cyclone Biparjoy, which the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) predicts will strike these districts on Thursday.

Rain is also anticipated in coastal regions this afternoon, according to officials.

Badin :

“We haven’t left our village yet,” said Mumtaz Ali, a resident of Golo Mandhro, which was entirely destroyed by the hurricane in 1999.
We can’t travel to camps with no facilities, he explained.
Ali stated that a camp had been established near his hamlet. “Is there any logic in leaving our home and attending a school that is not far from our home?” he asked.
At least eight relief camps have been built in Badin areas, with around 4,000 people now residing there. All camps have been set up at public schools.
All settlements along the shore have been evacuated, according to Badin Deputy Commissioner Agha Shah Nawaz Khan.
We will transport a few families who have refused to leave the camps. We want to secure their safety, he said.

“It’s not 1999,” Khan replied. It’s 2023. We have advised them that they must vacate the premises. All precautions have been taken. We will not abandon the people to the dangers of the tragedy, he said.
He stated that the evacuation has been ongoing since Monday am.

Sujawal :

Relief camps have also been established in Sujawal and its surrounding towns.
