Iran, March 28, 2019 - Angry flood victims of a village near the town of Aq Qala in Golestan Province, northeastern Iran, were seen voicing their strong protests on March 27 when the mullahs’ president Hassan Rouhani visited the area after a delay of many days. These angry locals are holding the regime and officials’ incompetence/corruption responsible for the floods.
Aq Qala locals were furious about why no relief aid has been provided after the flood. They criticized regime officials and emphasized how locals were the only individuals actually providing aid to their neighbors. There was no sign of any authorities or state institutions doing their duty, the angry locals added.
The devastation of floods continue across Iran as reports continue to show more people suffering.
Water levels have risen to such an extent that a goal of a football/soccer field in the city of Karoon in Khuzestan Province is seen going completely under water and locals say in irony the field has literally turned into a lake for the athletes.
Floodwaters have also risen very dangerously in the town of Isar of Aq Qala, Golestan Province, northeast Iran. Locals say authorities are not taking any measures and the town remains engulfed in water.
Unfortunately, the hand-made flood dam built by locals of Gomishan in Golestan Province, northeast Iran, was not able to prevent floodwaters from advancing. Water in the city has advanced from the east and into the streets and alleys of downtown Gomishan.
Torrential rains in Khorasan Razavi Province, northeast Iran, have inflicted massive damage to historic monuments. The three cities of Kashmar, Khalilabad and Bardaskan have witnessed major damages in the recent rains.
