Heavy Rainfall In Turkeys Antalya Destroys Bridges, Sweeps Away Cars - Local Authorities

A rain considered the strongest in 50 years has caused severe flooding in the Turkish resort province of Antalya, destroying bridges and sweeping away cars, Mustafa Koseoglu, the mayor of the city of Kumluca, said on Monday.

"Our region has not seen such a disaster for almost 50 years. Flood waters have destroyed the bridges, and the rescue equipment was unable to operate. Rainwater also caused flooding and damaged ground floors and cars ... sweeping away the vehicles and overflowing the greenhouses. Despite our efforts, we were unable to make up for lost time.

We want our citizens to be careful to avoid casualties," Koseoglu was quoted as saying by Turkish newspaper Star.

No casualties have been reported so far, according to the newspaper.
