ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkish officials say heavy rains triggered severe floods and mudslides in northern Turkey, injuring several people and leaving one woman missing. Helicopters scrambled to rescue people stranded on rooftops. The floods hit the Black Sea provinces of Bartin, Kastamonu and Sinop on Wednesday. They came firefighters in southwest Turkey worked to extinguish an ongoing wildfire in Mugla province, which runs along the Aegean Sea. In Bartin, 13 people were injured after part of a bridge caved in, officials said. The Interior Minister said an 80-year-old woman who was swept away by flood waters after her house collapsed is missing. In Sinop, helicopters lifted residents to safety amid gushing waters.
