Four dead as heavy flooding wreaks havoc in northeast Iran

At least four people have lost their lives as flooding, triggered by heavy downpours, hits Iran’s North Khorasan Province.

Gholamreza Shafigh, an official with the province’s crisis management department, told IRNA that the intense rainfalls caused a river in Farouj County to overflow onto the surrounding area in a period of only 20 minutes.

Heavy damage has been inflicted on the affected areas, said the official, adding that a search and rescue operation was still underway.

IRNA said 21 rescue teams have been dispatched to the northeastern province.
