Flash flood again hit a number of villages and roads in upper Chitral

By Zahiruddin

CHITRAL; After a respite of two months, flash floods again hit a number of villages in upper Chitral and a number of houses in Green Lusht were inundated while Chitral-Booni road has been closed for vehicular traffic as the road in Reshun village has been completely washed away.

The villages of Ragh, Koghuzi, Mroi and Barenis were also hit by the flood as a result of the torrential rain where a number of maize fields were swept away by the flood. However, no loss to human life was reported from any flood-hit area as the people had fled to the safer places.

The Green Lusht village had already lost more than forty houses and about one half of agricultural land to the flood in July last while a large number of boulders have rendered the surviving land useless.

Executive engineer of Communication and works department , Maqbool Azam told Chitral Times  that the roads in four different points were opened for traffic soon while heavy machinery was being mobilized to Reshun. He said that the road will be opened for vehicular traffic by Wednesday.
