Torrential rains in some areas of northern Tajikistan and areas of republican subordination caused mudflows that damaged households, residential facilities and roads.
In the Sughd region on July 28, heavy rainfall provoked mudflows in Ayni, Penjikent, Isfara, reports the Committee for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense of the Republic of Tatarstan.
“Due to heavy rains on the territory of the Urmetan rural jamoat of the Ayni district of Sogd, mudflows flooded and partially damaged local roads, auxiliary facilities and residential buildings. There are no casualties as a result of mudflows,” the report says.
According to preliminary data, as of the morning of July 29, mudflows caused damage to 63 households in the district, including 7 residential buildings, 56 auxiliary structures and household plots.
A working group of the CoES went to the site, the regional and district commissions for emergency situations are working to determine the damage and provide assistance.
In Penjikent, rains provoked a mudflow to the villages of Yori and Loik Sherali of the rural Jamoat of Amondara. Country roads and agricultural land in the villages of Roy and Ravodi were also damaged.
There were also no human casualties.
Isfara also suffered from bad weather: precipitation caused mudflows in the territory of the Khushobot mahala of the village of Vorukh of the rural jamoat of Vorukh of the city of Isfara.
“Fortunately, the mudflow did not damage the residential houses of the local population,” emphasizes the CoES.
Also, intense rains were recorded in the Devashtich and Istaravshan districts of the Sughd region, but no damage was recorded here.
But in Lyakhsh, in the east of Tajikistan, in the Archakapy region, due to the rising water level in the Sugat River, a mudflow arose that blocked the channel of the Surkhob River for 30 minutes.
“Currently, the highway in this area is closed, the movement of vehicles is prohibited. Restoration work is underway,” the CoES notes.
It will be like this for a few days.
According to the Agency for Hydrometeorology, on July 29-31, in a number of western regions of the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region, Sughd Region and regions of republican subordination, local mudflows, rising water levels in rivers, landslides and rockfalls persist.
Due to the prevailing weather conditions, the CoES, again appealing to the population, asks not to be near water bodies, not to fish, and not to go hunting, and also to refuse to graze cattle on pastures these days.
Citizens are also urged to observe basic personal security measures, to refrain from hiking in the mountains, collecting crops and firewood.
The CoES urgently asks the population to clean all ditches and ditches, mudflows located near their homes.
