Houses And Schools Are Under Water

February 16, 2010 — Two weeks of heavy rain has led to severe flooding in the northwest part of Turkey.

A severe downpour forced a couple of rivers to swell and burst their banks in Turkey on Tuesday.

The out spill has caused several power outages and a widespread of flooding. Houses and schools in the country's northwest province of Edirne are completely under water. Even the city's famous bridges have drowned.

Numerous border crossings that connect the country with others have been closed due to overflowing water.

Residents say life has essentially stopped in the region. The flooded country is what they consider normal now because it's all they've seen over the past couple of weeks.
