Karachi experiences worse heat wave ever.

Though the whole country is suffering from this torture but Karachi is getting worse. As heat wave hit the city, it became even more difficult for the people to manage.

Situation in Karachi is actually alarming as 65 people died of heatstroke. The people who died were between the age of six to 78.

Hashtags #HeatWave, #KarachiNeedsTrees and #GreenKarachi are trending.

Karachi is experiencing heat wave along with load shedding and water crisis. People, on social media, started this trend of educating more and more people about the solution of this problem. The solution they came up with is plantation. People are encouraging each other to plant more and more trees to get rid of heat wave.

As weather is getting hotter and hotter, government needs to think of some sustainable solutions to the problem of load shedding. People are fasting without electricity which is making Ramzan very tough. Although it is extremely hot, dehydration can be an issue. People can beat the heat with refreshing drinks and beverages.
