Recent Floods Claim Eight Lives Over Three Days

The State Ministry for Disaster Management Affairs reported that in the past three days, rainfall and flooding claimed the lives of eight individuals and injured three others.

According to the ministry, the floods and rainfall also destroyed 140 homes and devastated 20 acres of agricultural land across 15 provinces.

“From 25 of April to now, due to rainfall and floods in the provinces of Kandahar, Nuristan, Badghis, Ghor, Nangarhar, Maidan Wardak, Herat, Samangan, Panjshir, Laghman, Kunar, Baghlan, Kunduz, Sar-e Pol, and Parwan, eight citizens have lost their lives, and three others have been injured,” said Janan Saiq, the spokesperson for the State Ministry for Disaster Management Affairs.
 
Several victims in Nangarhar said that recent floods and rainfall have caused them significant financial loss.

They request emergency assistance and support from aid organizations and the Islamic Emirate.

"We lost our house and all our possessions; we request that aid organizations help us in this matter,” said Herat Khan, a victim from Nangarhar.

“The flood has come several times; people have suffered damages, and roads have not been repaired or completed. When the flood comes, it reaches the town square and damages homes,” said Firooz, a victim from Parwan.

The Meteorological Department of the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation also reported the possibility of snowfall in high-altitude areas and 15 to 30 millimeters of rainfall accompanied by thunderstorms and severe floods in 17 provinces.

The Chamber of Agriculture and Livestock stated that to prevent damage from floods and rainfall, the Islamic Emirate should maintain certain measures.

“There must be cooperation with the farmers so they can at least compensate for the damages they have incurred,” said Wasim Safi, the CEO of the Chamber.

This comes as over the past year, rainfall and flooding across the country, along with a deadly earthquake in Herat province, have caused substantial financial losses and casualties among the country's citizens.
