The devastating flash floods in the eastern Afghan province of Logar, which also inflicted financial harm on the area’s residents who were already in a precarious financial situation, have killed at least 10 people, according to local Taliban officials.

In the Pol-e-Alam and Khoshi districts of Logar province, a significant flood was reported to have taken place on Saturday, August 20, said the Taliban officials.

According to preliminary reports, 10 people in Logar province died as a result of floods on Saturday, according to Omar Mansour, the spokesman for the Taliban governor of Logar province.

Figures from the State Ministry for Disaster Management of the Taliban government suggest that 180 people have died and more than 200 more have been injured as a result of natural calamities over the last week in various regions of Afghanistan.

Financial losses were caused by flooding on Saturday evening in the eastern provinces of Paktia and Khost in Afghanistan. The flood’s devastation forced the closure of the Kabul-Paktia route to traffic.

The turbulent flood devastated many provinces of Afghanistan at a time when the Afghanistan Meteorological Department had issued warnings about the impending torrential downpours and flash floods.
