Residents of Karachi have been complaining about a weird and disgusting smell that has taken over the metropolis.
The citizens are wondering what is the cause of the sickening odor and are taking to social media to solve the mystery of the stink in the city.
The officials at WWF, this time last year, had revealed the reason behind the stench in the air and muse that environmental factors are responsible for it!
According to them, the decay of small planktonic dinoflagellate called Noctiluca Scintillans (also known as Sea Sparkle) has caused this stench.
It is expected that the strange smell citizens of Karachi are experiencing is due to the same cause.
Meanwhile, Facebook page ‘Weather Updates PK’ gave an explanation behind this concern. According to them:
Last year, the page added that there is a high humidity warning due to LLC.
“Due to a developing Low-Level Circulation (L.L.C) High Humidity Levels are likely to effect Karachi and adjoining areas in next 24 hours and will continue for 48 hours (30th – 1st June-17) under its influence Temperatures may Rise up to 37’C – 40’C (seasonally hot temperatures).”
“Whereas feels like temperature may rise up to 45-46’C in Karachi. (This is the main concern). Humidity levels may rise up to 60-75%, on the other hand, the Sea Breeze will cut off gradually from tonight for next 2-3 days, therefore, WUPK predicts chances of heat stroke to the human body are up to 70%.”
