The deadly floods in Turkey have been blamed on poor infrastructure and illegal development throughout the city like Istandul. Experts stated that areas that had infrastructure 10 years ago to cope with 10,000 people now have populations of 100,000 people with the same outdated infrastructure. The urban development of Istanbul has created large areas of impermeable surfaces that increase the amount and speed of water runoff.
