More than a $2bn-damage is the result of an ongoing flood so far, state media cited ministers as telling lawmakers on Sunday.
“Twenty-five provinces and more than 4,400 villages across the country were affected by the floods,” Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani-Fazli told parliament, according to the official IRNA news agency.
He said the damages amount to between 300 and 350 trillion rials – between $2.2bn and $2.6bn at the free market rate.
Transport Minister Mohammad Eslami meanwhile told government officials that “725 bridges have been totally destroyed.”
“More than 14,000 kilometers of roads have been damaged,” he said, according to IRNA.
The head of Iran’s meteorology service told the same parliamentary session that the floods do not necessarily mean that a decades-long drought has ended.
“The recent floods were due to climate change and global warming,” Sahar Tajbakhsh said.
Although state-run news agencies like Tasnim boast that the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, Basij forces and other regime affiliated institutions are aiding flood victims in the worst hit areas of Iran, locals say they have been abandoned by the government.
