Hama, Syria, Jan. 17, 2018. Rainwater overwhelmed 300 hectares of agricultural fields in the al-Ghab Plain area in the Hama countryside, Central Syria, threatening to destroy the entire production. Khater al-Ahmad, the head of the local council of the village of Daqmaq, 65 kilometers northwest of Hama, Central Syria, said that heavy rain overwhelmed 300 hectares (1 hectare equals 1,000 square meters) of agricultural lands due to the collapse of some channels to discharge rainwater such as the Tall-Wassit bridge. Earlier, the Syrian government cut drinking water in the city of Hama because the water was mixed with floods. Heavy rain affected crops and roads in the al-Hasakah governorate, Northeastern Syria. Rainwater caused houses to collapse and flooded hundreds of tents in camps in different Syrian areas.
