Istanbul floods.

20 years to the day since the massive earthquake, a months worth of rain fell on Istanbul in one hour today. This has resulted in massive flooding in many parts on both sides of the Bosphorus. Roads and underpasses running like rivers. One man has been drowned so far. The Grand Bazar was washed out with water waste deep in parts.
The pictures I have displayed shows what poor quality the road construction is.

Re: Istanbul floods.

Too much tarmac and concrete, nowhere for the water to go. Serious hills in Istanbul
