Dust storms are also experienced. The southern areas of Punjab and northern, as well as southern areas of Sindh, have especially the characteristics of deserts. The people living here lead hard lives. This area receives very little rainfall. Therefore, people have to fetch water from far off distant places. The life is comparatively comfortable in the areas which have canals as a source of water.
