News Comments Off

Floods in central Turkey, especially in the capital Ankara, have killed at least five people. This is evident from a new balance sheet from the Turkish authorities on Monday.

 

The body of a man who had been missing for two days was found Monday afternoon in Ankara, Turkey’s disaster management agency AFAD said. The local press says that one person also died in the city of Karaman.

On Saturday and Sunday, heavy rain showers, with up to 30 litres of precipitation per square meter, passed over the country’s centre. This led to heavy damage in many cities in the north and centre of Turkey.

As of Monday morning, eight villages in Kastamonu province were still inaccessible as roads subsided due to flooding.
