TORRENTIAL RAIN IN northern Turkey has led to flooding and landslides, causing at least 12 deaths.

Dozens of homes in Gundogdu, in the Rize province, were hit by the landslides following heavy rains beginning on Thursday night.

Many of the town’s residents were eating as the landslide hit, after a day of fasting for the religious month of Ramadan.

11 people were originally reported dead with two more missing. However, later on Friday the body of an elderly woman was recovered, bring the death toll of the sudden landslide to 12.

Speaking to Anatolia news agency, survivor Buruk Aka recounted the terrifying speed of the disaster:

We realized that the house was going to collapse. It did before I could say, ‘Run it’s going to collapse! …I managed to throw myself out but my mother-in-law and my brother could not escape. They were buried in the landslide.

Officials have said that at least seven people have been rescued.
