As many as 13 people have lost their lives and more than 100 houses have been destroyed due to torrential rains and flash floods in Afghanistan`s Ghor, officials said on Sunday.
Floods largely damaged provincial capital Firoz Koah and neighbouring Tolak claiming several lives.
Shahrak districts have also been severely affected, where over 100 houses were washed away and farmlands destroyed, thereby, sweeping away livestock.
The Governor also called upon national and international aid agencies to assist the flood-affected people.
Authorities have warned residents living along the river to be prepared to evacuate their homes as water levels surged.
