Our sympathies are with all those who lost their loved ones or their homes in #Golestan, #Mazandaran floods. Ready to support if needed.
Floods have affected at least 23 of Iran's 31 provinces since heavy downpours
began on March 19. Heavy rains triggered raging torrents of water in several areas of Golestan
province, near the Caspian Sea on March 19. The wave of heavy rains has so far
continued as many of Iran's provinces, including Lorestan and Khuzestan in the
west, are now facing an emergency situation.
Estimates by government agencies suggest that the floods have taken the lives of at least 42 people and destroyed over 25,000 homes across the country. . Meanwhile, rescue efforts are underway in several provinces.
