Erbil Governor reveals the damages caused by the floods in figures

Shafaq News/ The Governor of Erbil, Omed Khushnaw, revealed the damages caused by the floods that swept 15 areas in the governorate.

Khushnaw said in a press conference that the floods resulted in 12 mortalities, 10 of whom were found and handed over to their families, while searching campaigns are underway to find the bodies of a child and a man.

2509 families, 402 homes, 867 vehicles, (excluding government vehicles), 153 shops, car showrooms, stores, and markets were damaged, according to the governor.

Khushnaw indicated that the financial damages are estimated at 20-21 billion Iraqi dinars, in addition to huge damages to agricultural lands, sewage networks, streets, and sidewalks.

He continued that two earthen dams had been seriously damaged, and there are fears that they might collapse, noting that specialized teams are currently working to address the problem.
