Seven of the victims were female textile workers  who drowned in a micro-bus taking them to work in Bagcilar, a working-class suburb of Istanbul.

Many other vehicles were swept away with the drivers trapped inside. “TV pictures showed roads near Istanbul’s main airport submerged by deep water.” BBC reported.

“The flooding was caused by two days of torrential rainfall – the worst in 80 years.”
