14 March 2023: Southeast Türkiye

Fourteen people died and others were reported missing after flooding in two cities that were already devastated by last month’s earthquakes in Türkiye. Victims of the flooding were quake survivors who had been living in container homes since losing their homes in the earthquakes. Cars were swept up in the rush of floodwaters on the streets of Sanliurfa. The latest disaster came only five weeks after the twin earthquakes on February 6 in which 48,000 people were killed and many more left homeless. Roads were destroyed, buckling under due to the strength of the floodwaters. Several people were trapped under the water underneath an overpass.
