Sailors Missing in Persian Gulf after Heavy Storm Hits Iran’s Bushehr

A strong storm swept over the Bushehr province in southern Iran on Thursday night, preventing dozens of fishing boats from returning to the province.

At least 20 boats had been stranded in the sea after the heavy storm, but the YJC quoted officials as saying that all of them, except for one, have returned to the coast with minimum damages thanks to the rescue efforts by Bushehr’s Ports and Maritime Organisation.

The storm had a wind speed of over 60 kilometres per hour, according to media reports.

Hossein Derakhshan, the spokesperson of the Iranian Red Crescent’s Relief and Rescue Organisation, said the storm cut electricity in parts of the province and damaged sea ports, but no casualties have been reported so far.

The search and rescue operation is continuing non-stop in parts of the Persian Gulf near Bushehr.
