Death toll in Turkey storms tops six

Extreme winds in Turkey have killed six people and injured 52, according to the Press-Anadolu Agency. Several buildings in the province of Erzurum, southeast Turkey, were hit by down trees on Sunday, and fire broke out. The weather system has also hit much of Asia, according to the The New York Times, including typhoon Meranti in the Philippines that killed more than 200 people and a foot of rain in Vietnam that prompted floods and landslides.
