Eid holiday begins with nationwide rainfall


The three-day Eid holiday has started with rainfall in all seven regions of the country, with winds reaching up to 50 kilometers per hour in the western provinces.


“There will be heavy rains and thundery showers over all the coastal and eastern provinces of the country,” the Turkish state meteorological service said.

According to the office, temperatures will rise only in central and southeastern Anatolia provinces until the end of the week.

“Istanbul will see rain throughout the Eid holiday. Rainfall in Anatolia will continue until May 10 from place to place,” meteorologist Hüseyin Öztel said on May 2.

Snowfall is also expected in the higher regions of eastern Turkey, the meteorologist added.

Meanwhile, the eastern provinces of Adıyaman and Şanlıurfa woke up to perpetual rainfall that flooded the streets on May 2.

Many vehicles were overwhelmed by flooding where the water elevation reached half a man’s height. Residents of Adıyaman rescued two women from flooding.

“We experienced the heaviest rains in recent years in just a few hours,” Adıyaman Mayor Süleymen Kılınç said on May 2.
