Afghanistan flash floods: Over 200 killed, several missing, homes damaged after intense floods hit Baghlan

Afghanistan flash floods: The recent devastating flash floods in Baghlan, Afghanistan, have claimed the lives of over 200 individuals, with several others reported missing. 

The floods, triggered by intense rainfall, wreaked havoc in the region, leaving behind a trail of destruction and loss. Rescue efforts are underway to locate and aid those who have been affected by this natural disaster.


The overwhelming floods in the region caused thousands of homes to be completely destroyed or seriously damaged, leaving communities to deal with the consequences of the disaster.

As per the sources, the floods have occurred in the districts of Burka, Nahrin, and central Baghlan

Meanwhile, the search operation to find missing victims is underway and the death toll may rise.

In a statement, the Islamic Emirate's spokesperson, Zabihullah Mujahid, also offered condolences to the people affected by the floods in Baghlan, Badakhshan, Ghor, and Herat.

He further said that the province authorities and the Ministries of Defense and Interior have been instructed to use every resource at their disposal to save as many lives as possible.

Remarkably, such incidents have shook the nation recently.

At least 14 individuals lost their lives as a result of severe rains and flooding earlier this month, which also caused extensive damage across the country.

In the Greshk and Kajaki districts of Afghanistan's Helmand province, last month, torrential rainfall and flooding caused nine people's houses to collapse, resulting in fatalities.
