At least two die as floods lash Cyprus
AT LEAST two people died in flooding in northern Cyprus yesterday, as hail and rain hammered the island.
Turkish Cypriot media said the victims’ car had been swept away during a deluge late on Wednesday.
Cyprus residents have reported virtually uninterrupted rain since early on Tuesday, with some saying it was the heaviest in memory.
Flash flooding from an isolated downpour is not uncommon in Cyprus, but sustained floods are rare. Further bad weather is expected.
Social media images showed cars swept away into the sea.
