60-150 centimeters of snow fall closed roads in Ghazni

Heavy snowfall has closed roads connecting districts to provincial capital in Afghanistan’s central-eastern province of Ghazni.

Between 60 and 150 centimetres of snow has fallen in Ghazni, the provincial governor’s office said in a statement.

The statement said that the cleaning operation could not start due to snowfall and snowstorm.

Snowfalls in Afghanistan come after the country witnessed worst drought in decades last year.

Capital Kabul was also witness to heavy snowfall over the last couple of days.

Meanwhile, flooding was reported in western Farah province and southern Kandahar province following heavy rain.
