Turkey: Four dead and one missing from floods

Helicopters continue to evacuate residents from the affected areas

Four people were killed in flash floods in the Turkish Black Sea region of Kastamonu and one person is missing, the Disaster and Emergency Management Directorate (AFAD) announced today.
