Attaabad Lake starts overflowing

Hunza—Water has started flowing out from Attaabad Lake through the spillway, said Chairman NDMA General Nadeem Ahmad to mediapesons here. The outflow is recorded 70 to 80 cusecs for the time being and is increasing every half an hour.

All government institutes are asked to be on high alert in order to deal with any dangerous situation if and when it occurs. According to a report obtained from Karimabad check post , the outflow of water was very less initially, but will now increase.

Experts said that if the amount of water passing through the spillway reaches 1000-2000 cusecs, there is a possibility of the weak river banks to erode away. If this happens, the lower areas may be flooded. For this reason, the Gilgit-Baltistan government has transferred more than 20,000 people to safer areas.
