BOZKURT, Turkey, Aug 14 — Families of those missing after Turkey’s worst floods in years anxiously watched rescue teams search buildings today, fearing the death toll from the raging torrents could rise further.

Thirty-six people died as a result of floods in the Kastamonu district which includes Bozkurt, and another seven people died in Sinop and one in Bartin, the Disaster and Emergency Management Directorate said. Kalabalik was surrounded by residents who were asking each other whether anyone had any news about missing people.
