In recent days the region has experienced heavy rain, resulting in widespread floods.
Rabat – The Ministry of Equipment, Transport, Logistics, and Water announced yesterday, August 29, that the Regional Road 106, connecting Taliouine and Tafraout, in the Taroudant province of southern Morocco is blocked due to heavy rain.
The blocked road leads between the villages of Assaki and Ighrem. The Ministry advises people to avoid this section in a notice on its website. The recommended alternative would be to take the National Road 10 from Assaki until the intersection with National Road 7, then taking National Road 7 until the village of Ighrem. The notice also contains a number that affected citizens can call for more information: 05 37 71 17 17.
This announcement comes only two days after the Tizert village incident. In the same region as the blocked road, floods killed seven people and injured one.. The Ministry announcement could be the first step in preventing more weather-related accidents.
