ISTANBUL (AP) – Istanbul’s governor says the death toll from flooding in the city has risen to 20.

Muammer Guler says more than 20 people were also injured in the floods that immersed part of the city on Wednesday. He says heavy downpours are expected to continue throughout the week but insists authorities are taking the necessary precautions.

At least eight people also died in flooding in Turkey on Tuesday, including two in an Istanbul suburb.
