Heavy monsoonal rains triggered severe flooding in large swathes of the Indonesian capital Jakarta on Thursday, with many government offices and businesses forced to closed because staff could not get to work. Weather officials warned the rains could get worse over the next few days and media reports said that thousands of people in Jakarta and its satellite cities had been forced to leave their homes because of the torrential downpours this week.

At least 14 people have died in rain related incidents in Karachi so far. The rain continues to get worse and is on its second consecutive day of downpour. Civic authorities are struggling to drain rainwater that has collected overnight. The Pakistan Army and Sindh Rangers are also part of rescue operations.
