One Killed, near 1700 Houses Damaged as Floods Hit Southeastern Iran

The governor of Iran’s southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan on Friday announced that one person has been killed and about 1700 houses have been damaged after floods hit the province.

“Our first measure after the rain was to make efforts to save the people from drowning in the floods and prevent the closure of roads,” Ali Osat Hashemi said in an interview with the Tasnim News Agency.

However, he added, 1675 houses have been damaged by the floods in the province mostly because the houses were made of mud-bricks.

The provincial governor further said an old woman also lost her life in the floods after her 50-year-old mud-brick house collapsed.
