ISTANBUL — Floods have brought more misery to southeast Turkey, sweeping away tents and container shelters housing the survivors of February’s earthquake. The floodwaters also brought further criticism of the government’s disaster preparation and response.
At least 14 people were killed as rains on Tuesday and Wednesday turned streets into surging torrents. Adiyaman and Sanliurfa provinces, both of which suffered during last month’s earthquake, were hit hardest. Tent and container “cities” housing those left homeless by the earthquakes were deluged by the surging waters.
