Blast rocks hydroelectric plant in Central Anatolia
Sivas governor Salih Ayhan told Anadolu Agency that three vehicles were submerged on a highway near the plant, which is located in Koyulhisar district.
Six people and two vehicles were rescued from the heavy water, Ayhan said.
The water was cut off at the plant and the canal locks were closed. Ambulances, firefighters and teams from the Disaster Management Agency (AFAD) and National Medical Search Team (UMKE) have arrived at the site.
Due to the darkness, it is difficult to work on the stream bed, said the search and rescue team.
Construction machinery is removing the rocks and stones from the highway, which is closed to traffic.
