Turkey’s south braces for another storm two weeks after deadly tornadoes
Officials have released a fresh warning for Turkey’s southern towns two weeks after severe weather conditions including tornadoes claimed at least three lives.
The Meteorology Directorate said on Feb. 5 that the western parts of the Antalya province, including the touristic resorts of Kaş and Finike, will be hit by a storm that is expected to continue until Feb. 7.
Strong winds may reach as fast as 100 kilometers per hour, the statement said, while warning locals to take precautions in buildings and transportation.
Three people had died in Antalya two weeks ago and another citizen went missing after storms and tornadoes hit the province, causing more than 100 million Turkish Liras worth of damage.
