PARAKH (Pajhwok): Heavy rains and snow slides have caused financial losses in Panjsher, closing the main road that links the central province with Parwan and Kabul, an official said on Monday.

The road has been closed since on Sunday night, Governor Abdul Rahman Kabiri told Pajhwok Afghan News. Parts of the road between Anabi district and Zaman Kor area were damaged by flooding.

Several orchards and agricultural land were also destroyed by snow slides in the Tandkhoi area of Darai district, where hundreds of families had lost access to the district centre, Kabiri added. 

The governor said the overnight snow slides also restricted access of hundreds of families of Tringal area to the provincial capital.

A stranded resident of Malima area of Darai district, Mohammad Samim, said he was unable to go home because road closures. Dozens of vehicles were stranded in Koraba area, he said, urging authorities to address the situation.

The governor said he had shared the issue with senior officials in Kabul and efforts were underway to reopen the main link road.
