Pakistan Army, Rangers, and local authorities on Monday successfully built a makeshift dyke around the Dadu grid station to prevent flood waters from entering the facility.
The feat took the authorities around 36 hours. The dyke, made up of dug-up soil, is around 2.5 kilometres long and has so far protected the power supply facility from sinking.
After the construction of the safety dyke, the power supply was restored in the area.
A day earlier, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited Dadu and noted that the district is among the worst flood-hit areas of the county.
