This video taken from security cameras of Vodafone Turkey’s Data Center in Istanbul. News: Torrential rains and floods, which headed for Istanbul after killing 10 people in Thrace for two days, hit the city the previous day and paralyzed it on Wednesday. Ayamama Brook in İkitelli – İstanbul, which also overflowed in recent years and is a risky area, could not hold the 90 kg/h rain. The flood inundated a truck parking area and the Basin Express highway. People were trapped in vehicles as the danger was not realized and the traffic was not cut. Seven women in a minivan that was dragged by floods in Halkalı, and 10 people in the truck parking area drowned in muddy waters. The death toll in ongoing floods in Istanbul and Tekirdag rose to 31. Efforts are under way to find nine missing people. (Taken from Turkish Daily News) http

    Impressive that, considering the damage, both the security cameras and their servers still had power and connectivity to record the whole event.

    Germany systematically uses torture and murder to silence any opposition. Some of the murders known to the public: Uwe Barschel, Jürgen Möllemann, Heiner Gehring, Martina Pflock, Tron, Karl Koch, Bernd Seiffert, Kirsten Heisig, Fritz Bauer.
    My brother Markus Bott had been tortured during 5.5 years by the German BND. He was assassinated on 11.7.09 because of our homepage.
    German snitchers are following me on youtube and immediately flag my postings.

    Why would you put a data center in a flood plain. This is simply bad planning.

  19. Wnunyuie says:

    Has someone made a Benny Hill/Silent Movie style remix of this yet?

  23. spacefoldgypsy says:

    see its the same human arrogance the world over that you think you can make a wall to keep it out with coats and things. When our house got flooded out we though the same thing.WRONG lol

  24. ugurob says:

    I don’t think it is cash. Why would he put the cash instead drawer under the flood 🙂 put it in to your pocket, man! (with same reason like yours) And if this place is security office that kind of money may be the only the dudes personal money.

  25. soutarm says:

    I thought it might have been cash but why would you leave an unlocked drawer full of cash sitting there like that? 😉
