Kabul city’s power to be restored in five days

Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS) officials announced that Kabul’s electricity would be back in five days.

Heavy snowfall in Salang destroyed electricity cables and poles that caused power outage for about a month in Kabul city.

According to DABS officials, equipment worth 7mn AFN has been procured in order to reconstruct the downed lines.

This year, about 300 people died as a result of avalanches across Afghanistan. The majority of the disaster took place in the mountainous province of Panjshir, located a 150 kilometers (90 miles) north of Kabul.
