The number of people who died in flash floods that hit the coastal Black Sea province of Samsun on Wednesday rose to 11 after rescue teams found the dead body of the final missing person on Friday afternoon.
A marine police unit found 47-year-old Mustafa Gazel's dead body only 300 meters away from the Samsunspor training ground. Gazel's body was later taken to a state hospital morgue.
Torrential rains hit Samsun on Wednesday, triggering flash floods in many parts of the province that killed at least 11 people, including seven children. The downpour caused Mert River to overflow late on Tuesday, inundating nearby homes and shops and stranding cars in the Canik district of Samsu. An apartment building complex built by the Housing Development Administration of Turkey (TOKİ) was greatly affected by the deluge and the ground and first floors in many of the buildings were flooded.
