The toll from deadly flash flooding that ripped through northern Afghanistan on Friday rose to 62 people, mainly women and children, an official said, in a country highly vulnerable to climate change. 

A disaster management official in the northern province of Baghlan said heavy seasonal rains sparked the flooding, and residents were unprepared for the sudden rush of water. 

“The number of dead in today’s flood in Baghlan province has risen to 62,” Hedayatullah Hamdard, the head of the provincial natural disaster management department, told AFP.
