Government should be attentive as natural disaster still taking victims in Afghanistan

Once again a sudden rainstorm in the country’s eastern Maidan Wardak province diverted a river and caused flash flooding in some local areas, killing scores and leaving dozens of others missing. According to reports, the tragic incident happened late on last night in Jalriz, Chak, Sayed Abad, Narkh and Jaghatu districts of the province. Hundreds of houses have been completely or partially destroyed and agriculture products on thousands of acres of lands washed out during the furry natural incident. Road connecting Kabul and Bamyan and the regional roads extending to the provincial districts have been closed, as a result of the heavy rainfall and torrential flooding. Teams from civil and military institutions arrived at the scene to rescue bodies and open the roads, using machineries. This is another heartbreaking night disaster that affected thousands of impoverished families in Afghanistan, where hundreds of people have either been killed or suffered critical injuries in torrential flooding and earthquake over the last more than one year. Our country is facing heavy rainfalls and flooding in some provinces and extreme heat and drought in other regions this summer. The Islamic Emirate should have precaution plans to respond to similar unexpected incidents and might have already prevented the routes through which flash flooding rips through the villages and communities. During this year’s spring similar floods hit hundreds of residential units and washed out thousands of acres of land in a number of the countries’ provinces, but still less has been done by the related organs. To control similar disasters in the future, the related organs of the country should remain vigilant and be attentive to the weather forecast on one hand and on the other, they should have full preparation to respond to unexpected incidents, including natural disasters. The world charity organization should also provide urgent aid to the affected people and duly address their problems. People, mostly the area residents, should also leave the vulnerable regions near riverbeds from where flooding rises when heavy rains happen. The government should also build shelters far from the flooding regions and vulnerable areas to save the locals and provide them with needed essentials to avoid natural disasters’ mortalities.
