At least 27 people have so far lost their lives in flash floods in northern cities on the Black Sea coast, Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Directorate, AFAD, said on Friday.
Floods have brought chaos to the northern provinces of Kastamonu, Sinop and Bartın, from where thousands of people were evacuated by helicopters. Searches for the missing continue. The death toll is expected to rise.
“This is the most severe flood disaster I have ever seen,” Suleyman Soylu, the Interior Minister, said during his visit to the disaster areas. He added that half of Bozkurt district in Kastamonu province was destroyed by flood waters. Many buildings, bridges, roads were fully or partially destroyed in the district.
Only a week after fires ravaged southern Turkey, flash floods have struck the north, leaving dozens dead or missing, destroying homes and bridges and leaving hundreds of villages without power.balkaninsight.com
