CHARIKARinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Rains-induced floods have caused huge financial losses in the Surkh-e-Parsayee district of central Parwan province, officials said on Saturday.

A member of the provincial council, Qari Abdul Rahman, told Pajhwok Afghan News the floods hit Qatan Data, Land Qatan Dara and Dara-i-Kalan areas late Friday night.

A six kilometres stretch of road, 500 acres of farmlands, hundreds of trees, 43 waterheads and 10 houses were damaged by the heavy floods, the public representative said.
