this was an unprecedented hazard in its volume and mainly due to the fact that it also affected the urban areas, besides the rural territories.
Within a couple of hours, the hail blocked the sewage systems and the rain waters flooded the streets, houses, shops and other facilities
The Armenian Red Cross Society will provide immediate assistance to the 600 most affected households (approx. 2,670 people) through the provision of unconditional cash and voucher assistance, as well as in-kind relief goods to cover their basic needs and to help people cope with the consequences of the hailstorm.
