In Narowal district of Punjab, a torrent of floodwater from Nullah Dek washed away the standing crops. There were huge cracks in the fields after the ravaging water torrent which also caused the walls of nearby buildings to collapse. Local farmers appealed to the government and administration for immediate assistance.
