DUSHANBE, July 13, 2016, Asia-Plus – The Committee on Emergency Situations and Civil Defense (CES) under the Government of Tajikistan is warning of possible heavy rains and windsquall.

Ms. Umeda Yusupova, a spokeswoman for the CES, says weather will remain unsettled on July 14-15 and heavy rains, thunderstorm and windsquall are possible. 

A windsquall may damage power transmission lines and trees, she said.

We will recall that heavy rains in May caused floods and mudslides that have damaged homes and led to the evacuation of hundreds of people across the country.

The floods damaged more than 1,000 homes in several villages in the Roudaki district.  Floods and mudslides were reported in several other districts across the country.

In early May, three people were killed by mudslides caused by heavy rains in the northern Sughd province.
