Six people were affected by severe flooding in the Turkish Black Sea province of Riga. The Emergency and Accident Authority said heavy rains had affected the northeastern part of the province.

As a result, landslides occurred, which caused great damage. The Anatolian Agency reports that a building in the village of Murad has been destroyed.

One of the bodies was found under the remains of a destroyed building.
