Troubles in Turkey

Over the last two days torrential rains have plagued Istanbul and north-west Turkey. Over 20 people have died and there has been significant damage as a result of flash flooding. Read more about the problem at the BBC.

In addition, the flooding has made it difficult to reach Istanbul’s airport, as the main road accessing it has been closed by the flooding. Travelers are unable to reach the airport and those who have arrived at the airport from other destinations are unable to reach the city. If you are planning air-travel to Istanbul, you should consider postpoing your travels until later in the week, or perhaps longer.
