GILGIT-BALTISTAN: The schedule of intermediate examinations still stand unchanged despite the imminent danger of massive flood in Gilgit, Hunza and Gojal; all the examinations will take place as per schedule.The water level at the accident-accelerated Lake rose by two more feet; but, no extraordinary outpouring from the spillway was witnessed.
Spurred by the no-change water situation at the spillway, the miseries of the Gojal people are on the rise, as all the estimations and guesswork hitherto made by the experts regarding the outflow, seems to have proved wrong.
Meantime, National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) Chairman Lt-Gen (retd) Nadeem Ahmed said the Spillway was constructed on the estimates; however, seeing the overall situation, nothing could be said as the last word, as all upcoming circumstances are altogether hinged on the weather conditions.
Nadeem continued that all the steps taken up thus far would be of no use, if the weather did not make a turn to be conducive.
Yesterday night, the people in Shashkat were hugely panicked owing to the heavy landsliding. Also, the people in Gilgit are highly concerned ever since they heard the reports about the overflow from the Spillway.
However, according to the NDMA chief, the flood wave will be only 15-meter high when it will head for the Gilgit.
The Gilgit management is all geared up with the complete arrangements to tackle any emergency situation.
