Death toll in Afghan floods surges over 80; Entire villages washed away

Published: 06.08.14, 09:01 / Israel News

KABUL - More than 80 bodies have been found two days after a devastating flash flood in Afghanistan's mountainous and remote north, a provincial official said Sunday, as police and villagers scoured the rugged terrain for missing people and Army helicopters flew in supplies
to thousands left homeless by the disaster.

 

Lt. Fazel Rahman, the police chief in the Guzirga i-Nur district of Baghlan province, said the death toll from Friday's flash flooding had climbed to 81 from 54. He said 850 houses across several villages were completely destroyed and more than 1,000 were damaged by the heavy rain and flooding, leaving thousands of people in need of shelter, food, water and medicine.
