Blocks of flats built by the Housing Development Administration of Turkey (TOKİ) were greatly affected by the deluge and many of buildings' ground and first floors were flooded.
Search and rescue teams found the bodies of two young boys, aged 1 and 5, as well as a man and his two sons, aged 9 and 16, while searching the TOKİ complex. Samsun Governor Hüseyin Aksoy said an unidentified woman also drowned on the ground floor of one of the buildings and added that 21 people have been injured. Samsun Mayor Yusuf Ziya Yılmaz was also at the scene of incident to observe rescue operations.

Torrential rains hit the coastal Black Sea province of Sinop on Monday, triggering flash floods in many parts of the province and damaging houses, roads and bridges.
Many houses, workplaces and roads were flooded in the Dikmen and Durağan districts after it began raining early on Monday evening and continued into Tuesday. Rescue teams were mobilized to clear water from flooded homes and workplaces and three rescue helicopters were deployed to the districts to aid residents who were stuck on flooded streets. The Samsun-Sinop highway was closed to traffic after the Güzelceçay Bridge collapsed due to heavy rain. Speaking to the Anatolia news agency, Sinop Governor Ahmet Cengiz said the Dikmen and Durağan districts had sustained serious damage because of the flash floods, but that there had been no fatalities.
“The rain caused significant damage to property in the village of Akbel, in Durağan. Many roads collapsed and bridges were severely damaged, which caused disruption to the flow of traffic. We don’t know whether Dikmen has also sustained damage to the same extent, but we know for sure that there are no casualties in the area. Rescue teams are carrying out the necessary work,” Cengiz told Anatolia.
Meanwhile, the Turkish Red Crescent (Kızılay) sent rescue teams, tents, blankets and food packages to the flood-stricken districts.
Heavy rain and storms also caused problems in the Black Sea province of Samsun. Violent storms ripped down trees and power lines, knocking out power in 28 villages in the district of Çarşamba.
Many houses, workplaces and streets were also flooded due to the heavy rain in the city of Çarşamba, where traffic was significantly disrupted and many drivers were trapped on roads. The eastern province of Erzurum was also hit by heavy rain on Tuesday, with many houses and workplaces flooded in Oltu. The Oltu-Narman highway was temporarily closed to traffic and many other roads sustained damage.
Meteorologists have warned residents of the likelihood of flash floods and landslides caused by the heavy rains, which are expected to continue in the Black Sea provinces of Samsun, Ordu and Sinop.
Sulfur smell in the Balcan's too. Big stretch in this region. From the upcoming 7/7 Q&A ZetaTalk.
Not to reveal my safe location (at least I think it is safe), let's say it is somewhere in Balkans, I have noticed hydrogen sulfide odor in the water-well, root cellar and on the open field. Also one water-well that has been giving drinking water to the local population for centuries has dried up. Can the Zetas answer what could be the reason for this sulfur smell, what risks it poses and could it be a precusor for some greater things that could happen.
[and from another]
The Balkans, often referred to as the Balkan Peninsula, although the two are not coterminous, is a geopolitical and cultural region of southeastern Europe. The Balkans are highly mountainous; Mount Musala (2,925 metres (9,596 ft)) in the Rila mountain in Bulgaria is the highest.
The Balcans are in the stretch zone, as the singing reservoirs of Kiev
and the bubbling mud in the Azov
show. The Eurasian Plate is being pulled from Scandinavia through to the Himalayas, with rivers bottoms pulling apart and sinkholes appearing. The crust in a stretch zone will primarily give where it is thin, along river bottoms, but even in mountains there can be deep crevasses where the rock has fractured during past pole shift upheavals. Such crevasses allow lava to rise up, and a clue to this is the sulfur smell. Does this mean that volcanoes will emerge? Unless there is collateral PRESSURE in the lava, such breaks in the crust do not result in volcanic action. Under the Balcans, the pressure is relieved by the volcanoes in the Mediterranean, ripping open as Africa continues to drop during its 7 of 10 roll.
10.07.12. One dead as flash floods hit northern Turkey for second time.
Hi Sevan, also Snow fell in Georgia`s remote region of Tusheti (Caucasus) and also really surprised people.
Thank you for sharing Andrey. Informative post as always.
Some flooding (and damage) happening nearly in yearly routine in this region (Black sea region; in Rize, Artvin, Samsun cities etc), BUT not as heavy as this one.
This one is worst than previous floods,
Also for the first time snow hit Rize (in same region) in July on altitude of 2500 meters, which lasted until noon and really surprised people. Which is also another sign of increasing wobble.
