SULAIMANI – The Kalar mayor's office warned people living near the Sirwan River on Monday (April 1) to expect the river to rise over the next several days.

Officials cautioned people to stay away from the river because of the fast moving water and said that flooding  will likely damage property along the river.

The reservoirs behind Dukan and Darbandikhan dams are both nearing capacity. If water begins to flow down the spillways, there will likely be flooding downstream of the dams.

Rains are expected to continue over the next several days.
