In Behshahr, the latest reports indicate that 12 people are dead or missing, while homes and offices have been submerged, especially along the river banks.

Schools in Behshahr have shut down and power outages have occurred as the flood affects power poles.

The rains are reportedly continuing to intensify, which has made rescue efforts difficult.

Red Crescent officials have reportedly said that 16 rescue teams are currently engaged in rescue and relief efforts across the region.
