On Sunday, March 17th, rain began to pour across the northern cities of Iran. Cities and villages in provinces such as Golestan, Mazandaran, Northern Khorasan and Semnan flooded, as the consequences of the Iranian regime’s inadequate policies regarding natural disasters became apparent.
Lives and belongings were lost in the floods at the beginning of the Persian New Year. Those left homeless numbered in the tens of thousands. Financial losses are devastating in these provinces, and thousands of people are without shelter.
