STORYLINE:
Officials say 13 people have died in the Province of Baluchistan in Pakistan after it was hit by lightning and flooding.

“The total number of casualties confirmed and now is 13, in which four of them were struck by lightning, three were roof collapsed because of rain, and there were three casualties because the driver was in a hurry and the car fell in stream,” said Jahanzeb Khan, the Director-General of provincial Disaster Management Authority.

The latest figures bring the death toll from one week of extreme weather to at least 76, as the heaviest downpour in decades flooded villages on the country’s southwestern coast.

Most of the deaths were reported in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, in the country’s northwest.

On Thursday, Baluchistan was bracing for more rains amid ongoing rescue and relief operations, as flash floods inundated villages near the coastal city of Gwadar.
