According to the local sources, unprecedented and heavy snowfall in central Afghanistan’s Bamyan province at this time of the year will pose a threat to the livestock and damage agricultural products.
Several people in various regions of Bamyan province have reported that it has snowed to an unusual level in their localities at the start of the summer season, sharing images of the snow.
Residents of villages in Bamyan and the Qarghanato area of the province report that snow fell last night in many of these villages, and the weather was substantially colder.
Meanwhile, the Taliban’s Ministry of Public Works said that snow fell in various sections of Bamyan province this morning, but that there was not enough to cause traffic congestion.
The snowfall in Bamyan province comes at a time when meteorologists at the Afghanistan Meteorological Department issued a warning for heavy rainfall in certain parts of Afghanistan and the possibility of flash floods and gust wind.
Although Bamyan is a chilly, mountainous province, snowfall on a summer night is unprecedented in at least the last 20 years.
