Floods in Iran claim 2 lives, one missing

Heavy downpours in Iran have triggered floods in 13 provinces, which has so far left 2 people killed and another missing, the head of the country’s relief and rescue organization says.

Babak Mahmoudi told ISNA news agency on Friday that dozens of rescue teams have been dispatched to the affected areas from the country’s southeastern borders to the central areas and northern Mazandaran and Gilan provinces since the downpours started last Thursday.

The rains caused canals to overflow and rivers burst their banks.

An elevated level of warning was issued for the intense rains in the eastern half of Mazandaran, Golestan and North Khorassan Provinces prior to the rains.
