Snow in Quetta Drives People to Picnic Spots

Quetta Snowfall

Quetta: (Monday, January 28) People were delighted with the hailstorm followed by snowfall that started on Sunday night and continued till wee hours of Monday.

Quetta wore a sheet of snow covering the entire city, which looked like a white fairy. Large numbers of people thronged to picnic points and parks, especially Hanna Lake and other plain areas, to enjoy the snowy weather.

However, day laborers and commuters, including cyclists and bike riders, faced great difficulties while moving towards their destination as the roads became slippery, causing a number of minor road accidents.

Minimum temperature was recorded to be negative nine, with slight reduction in chilly conditions expected. Local Meteorological Office has forecast cloudy weather with chances of light rain during the next 12 hours.

The cold weather, accompanied with electricity and gas outages, has made life difficult for the people. Read our related stories here:
