In the central and southern Afghan provinces of Ghazni and Kandahar, respectively, the local Taliban officials say that heavy downpours caused raging floods that resulted in severe economic damage as well as 9 flood-related fatalities.

Six people have died as a result of flooding in several areas of the Maruf district of Kandahar province, according to information released to the media on Tuesday, August 23, by the Taliban office of the chief of police for Kandahar province.

Furthermore, the catastrophic flooding that raged throughout the province has claimed the lives of 3 people in the districts of Jaghori, Qarabagh, and Andar in Ghazni.

Sources report that a father and a son are among the fatalities caused by torrential rains which resulted in powerful floods.

The sources further stated that in the village of Angoori in the Jaghori district and Gandir area in the Andar district of Ghazni province, dozens of acres of agricultural fields were turned into wetlands and devastated as a result of the floods.

For three days straight, the Ghazni province has experienced severe flash floods that have killed numerous locals. At least five people were killed and numerous others were injured by yesterday’s flooding in different areas of Ghazni.

This comes as the Afghanistan Meteorological Department issued alerts and warnings about forecasted rain, flash floods, and wind gusts in various regions throughout Afghanistan, including Ghazni and Kandahar provinces.
