The flood in Giresun has blocked many roads. There was no access to the district of Dereli from the main road. Many homes and workplaces were seriously damaged by the flood. Electricity was cut off and communications infrastructure collapsed. IHH’s Search and Rescue operations were launched under the coordination of AFAD to find those missing in the flood. The death toll from the flood has risen to four. There are still people missing in the region.

The Disaster and Emergency Response Service Unit affiliated with IHH’s Disaster Management Commission conducted rescue operations in Giresun since the disaster struck. Initially, IHH’s Disaster and Emergency Response Service Units launched both evacuation and Search and Rescue operations with its 40-member team.
