More than three people have died, and seven have been injured due to heavy rainfall and flooding during the last two days, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) said on Saturday.

On Friday and Saturday, nine provinces were affected by severe weather, which resulted in the partial or complete destruction of more than 756 homes. 

Balkh, Zabul, Faryab, Uruzgan, Nimroz, Nangarhar, Kunar, Nuristan, and Laghman were the most severely affected provinces.

Sahfihullah Rahimi, a spokesperson for the Disaster Management Authority, said that the affected families were provided with necessities such as food, tents and blankets.

And a team will send to visit and survey the damaged area.

Meanwhile, a powerful earthquake of 6.5 magnitudes hit Afghanistan last week, killing ten people, injuring more than 60 others, and damaging 800 houses, said NDMA.
