Turkey's capital Ankara was hit Saturday by sudden flash floods caused by heavy rains in the central Anatolian province.

YouTube videos show dozens of vehicles dragged down the streets in Ankara's Mamak district.



Dozens of homes and offices on the Neşet Ertaş Street in Mamak were also flooded, while residents sought shelter on top floors.

Ankara Mayor Mustafa Tuna said in a statement that six people were slightly injured adding that none of them were in critical condition.


Tuna also underlined that only Mamak was affected by the flood saying that Ankara's remaining districts were safe.

Municipal workers rushed to the scene to initiate clean-up activities.
