DUSHANBE, August 1, 2016, Asia-Plus -- Downtown Dushanbe, including the Ismoili Somoni district and some areas of the Sino, Shohmansour and Firdavsi districts were left without water on Saturday because of a mudslide that hit the Varzob district on Friday.

The water supply to the mentioned areas was resumed Saturday midnight.

We will recall that torrential rain on July 28 and July 29 caused a series of mudslides that damaged roads and bridges in the districts of Asht (Sughd province), Varzob and Rasht (Rasht Valley).

In the Rasht district, mudslides have damaged a bridge and farmlands in the villages of Qalanak and Yaldumich.

Mudslides have reportedly also damaged in several places the Hoit-Nazarailoq road in the Rasht district.

In the Asht district, mudslides damaged two residential buildings, five cars, one teahouse and 10-15 kilometers of roads in the villages of Dahansoy and Punghoz. No injured was reported.  

District commissions are currently working in the areas to mitigate the mudslides’ effects.
