Floods cause outage in several villages in southeast Iran

Floods triggered by heavy rainfall have hit Iran’s southeastern Sistan and Balouchestan Province, inundating 8 towns and 33 villages there.

Three cars were swept away by the flooding while it also caused an outage in 7 villages.

Authorities say efforts are underway to restore power in those villages.

There are no reports of casualties in the flood-hit areas yet though.

Earlier, flash floods killed dozens in Estahban in Far Province. A number of people remain missing.

Iran’s Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi, while visiting the flood-hit areas, offered condolences to the families of the flood victims.
