Last month, 70 people lost their lives in Afghanistan due to torrential rains and flooding. According to a report by international news agency Reuters, in the northern province of Baghlan, intense rainfall and flooding resulted in the deaths of 50 people and more than 100 injuries.

The spokesperson for the Afghan Ministry of Interior, Abdul Matin Qanai, stated that the severe rainfall and flooding in Baghlan on Friday caused the deaths of 50 people and left over 100 injured, with fears of an increase in casualties. He mentioned that five districts in Baghlan are currently facing flooding, with over 150 people trapped and awaiting immediate assistance.

Qanai further mentioned that more torrential rainfall is predicted for Friday. The Ministry of Interior has dispatched rescue teams and helicopters to the affected area, but due to the lack of night vision lights in the helicopters, rescue operations may be challenging.

It is important to note that Afghanistan has seen numerous casualties during the past month due to torrential rains, with the Disaster Management Department reporting 70 deaths during the previous rainfall. The spokesperson for the Disaster Management, Janan Saigh, mentioned that 70 people lost their lives, 56 were injured, 2600 houses were damaged, and 95 thousand acres of agricultural land were destroyed due to the rainfall.

The United Nations had warned last year that Afghanistan would be severely affected by climate change, and the changing weather patterns could lead to extremely serious situations.
