Following heavy snowfall over the last few days, over 50 avalanches have hit the Badakhshan regions of Tajikistan and Afghanistan. Multiple casualties have been reported so far and around 20 buildings and houses have been damaged or buried in the provincial capital Khorog as well as surrounding towns.
AKDN is also providing fuel to district authorities to support local ambulance services and is clearing roads blocked by the avalanches.
AKDN’s Pamir Energy is working to repair damage to power lines and resume energy services in affected towns as soon as possible.
