Strong winds rip off roofs in the Turkish capital

The strong winds that hit the Turkish capital, Ankara, this morning, accompanied by rain and a sharp drop in temperatures, completely tore off the roof of a building in the central Çankaya district, where parts of the detached roof ended up hitting other buildings and falling on cars in the street, causing extensive damage but fortunately no injuries.

In total, the damage to the affected building alone is estimated at almost 10,000 euros. Also in Ankara, a car was damaged after a wind-blown tree fell on it in the Çubuk district. In other parts of Turkey there were also incidents due to rain and wind, which are expected to continue until tomorrow. On the other hand, the snow announced in several regions of Turkey also began to fall this morning in the highest parts of Ankara.
