TEHRAN (FNA)- Heavy rains led to flash floods that killed at least 19 people and injured four others in southwestern Iran.
The flooding hit the southwestern Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari province on Tuesday night. The waters wrecked more than 50 homes and 740 acres of farmland.
At least 1,030 cattle perished. The floods also destroyed five fish-breeding facilities.
A local official, Sattar Farhadi, said that the towns of Kohrang and Ardal, and surrounding villages were the hardest hit, with hundreds of families left homeless. Flash floods are rare in southwestern Iran.
