At least 4 die in flood in Turkey’s Black Sea

A flash flood claimed at least four lives in Turkey's Black Sea region, the interior minister said on Wednesday.

Süleyman Soylu said four people died in flood in the Araklı district of Trabzon province.

On Tuesday, Ismail Ustaoğlu, province's governor, told reporters that they have recovered the bodies of two people and rescue teams were trying to find eight others.

On his previous statement that the flood killed six people, Ustaoğlu said that he had been misinformed about the death toll.

Turkey's Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD) and all other search and rescue teams continue their efforts in the region.
