KABUL, Afghanistan: At least 46 people have been killed and hundreds of houses destroyed by flash floods as torrential rains lashed a city north of the Afghan capital, officials said Wednesday.
A rescue operation was underway to free people trapped in the rubble of collapsed buildings in Charikar, capital of Parwan province, which was hit by heavy rain overnight.
“There are two families in our neighborhood who are still under the debris,” Abdul Majid, a resident of Charikar told television network Tolo News.
“We need more rescue workers to help us.”
