After several days of heavy rain and violent storms, the consequential flooding has been devastating for the people of Iran. There have been a large number of people killed and even more injured. Many have lost their homes, their belongings and their livelihoods.
The floods came in the midst of the Nowruz – or Persian New Year – celebrations; a time that should have been full of hope for the people. However, instead, the year started off catastrophically because the Iranian regime did not step in to provide the help that was needed. Before the floods hit certain areas, the people tried their hardest, in vein, to stop the potential flooding from affecting them.
