Exceptional springtime downpours began sweeping the country on March 19, with raging water torrents battering houses, washing away cars and killing over 70 people in several provinces. The material losses caused by the water torrents have so far been estimated to be to the tune of 500 trillion rials ($3.5 billion), mainly to homes, farmlands, roads, bridges and power and water infrastructure.
