Flash Floods Kill 6, Injures 8 in Afghanistan

At least six people were dead, and eight others were injured in eight provinces of the country over the past week, according to an official of the Ministry of disasters management.

Shafiullah Rahimi, a Taliban spokesperson for the Natural disasters management authority, said on Wednesday that the flash floods hit almost eight provinces in the country, including Badakhshan, Paktia, Kunar, Bamyan, Ghor, Takhar, Nuristan and Parwan.

The natural disaster had financial losses, including destroying 30 residential houses, 85 animals and seven bridges, according to Rahimi.

Last month, flash floods hit Ghor province, killing four women, one man and a child in Firozkoh city.

A similar incident occurred in the eastern province of Nangarhar, killing four people and injuring more than 25 others.

According to several reports, at least 29 people were killed across the 31 provinces of the country due to flash floods and earthquakes in April 2023.

Meanwhile, officials said the natural disasters brought material and financial losses, including the death of 848 animals, the destruction of 155 houses, the partial damage of 1,242 houses, and the loss of 7,106 acres of agricultural land.

Afghanistan is the most vulnerable country to various natural disasters, including flooding, earthquake, avalanches, heavy rains and landslides.
