Chenab peak ebbs; threat to Sindh eases

By Intikhab Hanif | Majeed Gill | Malik Tehseen Raza

LAHORE/MUZAFFAR­GARH/BAHAWALPUR: The weakened peak in Chenab River crossed Panjnad on Tuesday without harming it, but wreaked havoc deep into the heart of southern Punjab.

The discharge in the river at Panjnad was about 450,000 cusecs because of breaches made at several points upstream and downstream Trimu, diverting the floodwater to human settlements to reduce the fury of the river. The discharge was earlier estimated at 700,000 cusecs.
