Flood Damages Worth $53m Inflicted on Iran’s Sistan-Baluchestan Infrastructure.
Flooding in southern Iran has now left at least 3 people dead and 1 missing, according to media reports.
Heavy rain from 09 January 2020 caused major flooding in the provinces of Kerman, Sistan and Baluchestan and Hormozgan. In a 24 hour period to 11 January 2020, 92.7mm of rain fell in Bandarabbass, Hormozgan Province. The following day 76m of rain fell in Chahbahar, Sistan and Baluchestan Province.
Flooding in Iran has destroyed houses and displaced hundreds of people. Roads have been rendered impassable by flood water, leaving hundreds of villages isolated.
According to Iran’s Press TV, emergency responders have rescued 1,250 people and provided emergency accommodation for more than 300 people in around 40 towns and villages in Sistan and Baluchestan.
Widespread flooding affected the provinces of Hormozgan, Khuzestan and Bushehr in late December 2019, leaving hundreds of people displaced.
minister of Roads and Urban Development Mohammad Eslami says flooding has inflicted damages on roads, bridges and waterways of the southeastern Sistan-Baluchestan Province worth 7,000 billion rials ($53 million).
“Over 800 rural roads were either damaged or washed away by torrential rains, but thanks to the efforts and dedication of road workers and the use of 375 heavy vehicles, all but 30 roads have reopened. All major thoroughfares are open and most secondary roads have been repaired,” he said on Thursday.
Heavy rainfall, which started on Jan. 9, caused flash flooding in the southeastern provinces of Sistan-Baluchestan, Kerman and Hormozgan. It was Sistan-Baluchestan that bore the brunt of the recent flooding, as its southern parts received 26 times more rain than last year, IRNA reported.
