"At least six people have been killed and large parts of north western Turkey are underwater after flash floods struck the region on Monday.

Rescue workers in the western town of Saray recovered the bodies of a mother and her three daughters and those of an elderly couple whose house had collapsed.

Suburbs of Istanbul have also been flooded."

 The death of at least 6 people isn´t important enough for you?

Today there was a striking piece of news in a Turkish newspaper, the amount of precipitation accumulated after the 30 minute heavy rain fall of yesterday (90kgs)  was higher than the amount of average total precipitation of the entire year (80kgs).

 

Every year torrential floods happen in this country. They are a very serious problem especially for the Black Sea region where precipitation amounts are particularly high and where most towns are located at the mouths of natural gullies on a mountainous terrain with sharp slopes.

Seems getting worse..

 

Rescuers recovered 17 bodies following flash floods that gushed across an Istanbul highway near the district of Ýkitelli, Doðan News Agency said.

Among the casualties were four bodies recovered by firefighters at a truck parking lot off the highway.

 I just dont see the point of posting it in the forum. Who wants to know these things just need to turn on the TV.
