Turkey’s northeastern provinces were hit by heavy rains this weekend, causing flash floods that submerged a number of vehicles.

Another truck, a concrete mixer, was reportedly saved by passersby.

The construction site of a planned hydropower plant near Yolaç was also submerged in downpours, according to the reports.
