Unchecked flow of floodwaters from Tori and Begari breaches inundated Qubo Saeed Khan, a thriving town of Qambar-Shahdadkot district, on Tuesday, cutting all road links and making it impossible for the affected people to move to safety.

District Coordination Officer Ghulam Yaseen Shar said evacuation of about 150 villages along a 51km dyke had been ordered and people had started moving out. All the villagers were warned about the flood at the eleventh hour. But the villagers were saying how can they shift themselves to a safe place if they don't have any transport.

The Qubo Saeed Khan town with a population of about 20,000 is facing water surge from three directions — Shahdadkot, Chukhi and the FP embankment
