|Comments:|| On 5 and 6 July 2022, there was heavy rain, which is not seasonal, in nine provinces of Afghanistan, namely, Ghazni, Logar, Kunar, Laghman, Logar, Nangarhar, Nooristan, Paktia, Parwan, and Wardak. The heavy rains caused flash floodings in these provinces. Situation was made worse, as rains continue to impact these provinces as well as Kandahar, Urozgan and Zabul. As of 11 July 2022, the flash floods had impacted all these 12 provinces in various level of impact. As reported by OCHA in its Flash Update No. 2, unexploded ordnances had also been dislocated due to the floods in Paktia which increased the risks of accidental explosions in the area . Due to the extent and breadth of the floods, the number of people affected is yet to be determined.
Based on the findings as of 12 July 2022, 9 of the 12 ARCS branches (Kandahar, Kunar, Laghman, Logar, Nooristan, Paktia, Urozgan, Wardak, and Zabul) has reported a total of 42 people lost their lives, 5 people injured, 1,720 houses destroyed, 3,073 houses damaged, 790 acres of agricultural land destroyed, 444 tube wells inundated, 12 wheat mills destroyed, 28 bridges collapsed, at least 5km road damaged, 49 livestock killed and 3 electrical system damaged.
