Tehran: Flash floods hit the Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas overnight killing one person as torrential rains ended a year-long drought, the provincial governor said on Thursday.

The eight-hour downpour also caused damage estimated at $42.8 million in the city of 580,000 people, Hormozgan governor Jassem Jaderi told state television.

Bandar Abbas international airport was forced to close when the deluge overwhelmed a nearby dam submerging the runways, Fars news agency reported.

It was not expected to reopen before midday (0830 GMT) on Friday.
