One dead, five missing as severe flooding hits Iran’s NW regions

At least one person is killed and five others are missing as severe flooding, caused by heavy rainfall, ravages through towns and villages in Iran’s northwestern province of Ardebil.

Hassan Molaei, the governor of Garmi County, said the floods inflicted heavy damage on the facilities and infrastructure of roads in the region on Wednesday.

“All city officials and crisis management authorities are on full alert so that we can stand by the citizens,” the official said.

Two people have also been wounded in the natural disaster, said Molaei, adding that a search and rescue operation is ongoing in the region to find the missing and provide aid to those in need.
