Floods destroy 641 houses
in Nangarhar




JALALABAD (PAN): Nearly 641 houses have been destroyed and 900 acres of cropped
land washed away by floods over the past three days in the eastern province of
Nangarhar, officials said on Tuesday.


The rain-induced floods killed livestock besides damaging dozens of reconstruction
projects in Hesarak, Khogyani and Chaparhar districts, the governor's spokesman said.
Ahmad Zia Abdulzai told Pajhwok Afghan News up to 435 houses, 750 acres of land,
35 kilometres of water channels and 20 water heads were destroyed and 200 animals
killed in Sarando, Nawar and Lagigar villages of Hesarak.


More than 150 acres of land and 206 houses were destroyed in Khogyani and
Chaparhar districts, he said. Governor Gul Agha Sherzai has appointed a delegation to
survey the area for assistance to victims.


But a spokesman for the Afghanistan National Disaster Management Authority
(ANDMA), Shukrullah Ihsas, said they could not help the affected farmer under the
relevant rules.


But Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock Director Mohammad Husain Safi said they had
appointed district extension mangers to assess the scale of damage. Spades, pickaxes
and handcarts would be distributed to affected growers.
