Three reported dead after flooding in occupied north – one missing

Turkish Cypriot media are reporting that three people have been found dead after flooding in Kyrenia.

The three people – two men and a woman – were found in a car at the bottom of a cliff by the main Nicosia-Kyrenia highway.

According to Kibris, one more person believed to have been in the car is missing.

The ‘Fire Service’ tried bring up the car last night but they could not do so due to heavy rainfall.

Haber Kibris writes that Kyrenia, Karavas and Lapithos were most affected by Wednesday’s storms as roads flooded and landslides were reported.

In Neo Chorio, near Trachoni, a school’s roof collapsed.

Schools as well as some educational institutions in the north will not operate today.
