2509 families, 402 homes, 867 vehicles, (excluding government vehicles), 153 shops, car showrooms, stores, and markets were damaged, according to the governor.

Khushnaw indicated that the financial damages are estimated at 20-21 billion Iraqi dinars, in addition to huge damages to agricultural lands, sewage networks, streets, and sidewalks.
