SCRIPT
Heavy rains triggered floods and disrupted traffic in Istanbul and other cities in northwestern Turkey on Saturday. Footage shows traders trying to salvage items from shops flooded in an underpass in the Buyuksehir district.
A 70-year-old man was reportedly found dead in a separate underpass in the Fatih district, where waters reached 190 centimetres (6.2 feet). It's not clear whether his death is linked to the floods.
