Ankara : At least 14 people have died and thousands have been left homeless after torrential rains caused floods in two Turkish provinces. Officials gave this information on Wednesday. Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said rescue teams were on the lookout for the five missing in three places. Soylu said 12 people were killed by floods in the southeastern province of Sanliurfa, while two people were killed in neighboring Adyaman province.
In Adiyaman, victims drowned when water flooded the camp of a family who survived the earthquake, local television reported. The governor of neighboring Sanliurfa province, Salih Ahan, told local television that four people had died in his area. Rescuers later found the bodies of five Syrians inside an apartment in Sanliurfa, and two other bodies inside a vehicle. A video released by Sanliurfa television showed flooded streets and cars floating in the water.
