Flights partially resume at Istanbul's airport after storm
ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Flights at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport, Turkey's largest by passenger numbers, partially resumed on Thursday afternoon after being suspended for about an hour due to a storm, an official at the state airports authority said.
Istanbul and Turkey's western coast including the coastal hub of Izmir suffered heavy rain, snarling traffic and damaging the basements of some buildings.
Earlier on Thursday, a 16-year-old boy drowned in the western city of Izmir after being dragged along the street by flood water, local media said.
