Ghazni villages devastated by heavy rainfalls

20 villages in the district of Andar and Deh Yak in southern Ghazni province were hit by heavy rains and hailstorm on Saturday.

Farmers from the districts claimed that the rainfall lashed their farms. “I had grown onions in 20 farms but the storm destroyed the crops completely,” said a resident.  

Another resident shared a similar story and demanded the government to assist the victims financially.

According to the chief of Andear district Sher Khan Yousafzai, farmers in the two districts have suffered financial losses worth hundreds of thousands of Afs due to the catastrophic storm. He had approached Natural Disasters Management Authority (ANDMA) for assisting the affected farmers.
