Iranian MP calls situation in flood-hit areas of Iran’s southeast as “catastrophic”

An Iranian MP has warned of what he has called the catastrophic situation in the south of the country's Sistan and Baluchestan province following heavy flooding there.

Moeinedin Saeedi, who represents the people of some of the provincial cities, said 10 people have already died in the floods in the southeastern province.

The lawmaker added that bridges have been destroyed and homes inundated in the flood-hit areas.

Saeedi noted that many people in the region are also without electricity, which has made matters worse.

The MP said the recent two floods have destroyed all the belongings of people in the south of Sistan and Baluchestan province.

He further referred to the presence of officials in the flood-stricken areas like the Iranian interior minister and the head of the Crisis Staff.

Saeedi thanked the governor of Sistan and Baluchestan province for coming to the area in the first moments after the floods hit, but noted that merely visiting the region will not have much of an effect.

Saeedi underlined that all the people in the region expect road construction equipment to be mobilized to repair the infrastructure.
