Intense rain showers have been lashing parts of Asia including India, Bangladesh, China, and Pakistan. The heavy monsoon spell has further led to landslides, floods and severe water-logging taking its toll in terms of life and property.
A cloudburst incident severely flooded several regions of Pakistan's capital city Islamabad on Wednesday and washed away several parked vehicles.
The calamity was confirmed by Muhammed Hamza Shafqaat, the Deputy Commissioner of Islamabad. 
​As of now, no deaths or injuries have been reported that were attributed to the incident. 
Visuals emerging from the affected regions, however, detail the horrifying situation in Islamabad as rains continue to lash the city.
Pakistan Army personnel as well as the district administration are carrying out search and rescue operations.
