It was a dramatic week for weather last week as Fethiye Times reader Geoff Bramfitt explains.

“With such heavy rain during the night and this morning we watched in dis-belief as a torrent of muddy water ran down the hill , through our neighbours garden, turning everything into a muddy lake.”

“It carried on into our garden flooded the pool, the terrace ,the garage flooded , a river was flowing down the road.”

“Armed with fishing waders and raincoat we started draining the pool and pumping out the pit , but the rain as so heavy it was no use.”

“I have never seen such instant floods in 8 years.”
