DUSHANBE, April 14. /ITAR-TASS/. At least 15 people have been killed in mudslides in the south-east of Tajikistan last week. Half of them were children, sources from the republic’s Committee for Emergency Situations told ITAR-TASS on Monday.
“Three families from the settlement of Odinaboi in Shuroabad region were buried under a huge mudslide triggered by heavy rain. The bodies of two more people from the neighboring Khamadoni and Vose regions were retrieved later,” committee spokesman Orif Nozimov said.
He said the government commission led by Deputy Prime Minister Murodali Alimardon was specifying the number of houses damaged or destroyed in mudslides, as well as the amounts of cattle killed. The spokesman said the damage was already running into millions of dollars.
Rescuers are clearing debris. Residents of mountainous areas left without housing have been accommodated in a tent camp of 60 large weatherproof tents. Foodstuffs of prime necessity have been delivered in the areas hit by mudslides.
