The latest victim was a seven-year girl whose body was found 700m from her house after she was swept away on Saturday by floodwaters in Cat, eastern Turkey, Anatolia news agency reported on Sunday. 

Three deaths were reported in the eastern town of Erzurum, two in Batman in the southeast and another in Bitlis, while five people were unaccounted for in Kony, central Turkey, and Silifke in the south, officials said. 

Meanwhile, eight people, including a 60-year-old British skier, died in avalanches in eastern Turkey on Friday and on Saturday. 

In Silifke, nearly 10,000 houses were submerged by overflowing waters of the Goksu river, Anatolia quoted the provincial governor, Atilla Osmancelebioglu, as saying. 

It said the sole bridge linking the eastern Ardahan province to
neighbouring Georgia was swept away by waters of the Kura river.
