At least 25 people died and more than 150 were injured during windstorm and heavy rains in the Pakistani northwest city of Peshawar Sunday, the local Geo TV news channel reported, citing the provincial minister Zia Afridi.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to Afridi, strong winds and heavy rain destroyed the roofs and the walls of several clay houses in the suburbs of Peshawar. Wind tore the trees out of the ground in some areas.

The injured, including women and children, were hospitalized. Search and rescue operations, which are currently hampered by heavy rain, are continuing in the disaster area, the channel said.

Geo TV warned that more heavy rains with windstorm could take place in Malakand, Hazara and Peshawar within the next 24 hours, according to the Meteorological Department.
