Authorities issued an "orange alert" for Istanbul as storms and strong winds took over Turkey's most populated city on Monday.
Winds reached speeds of 40 and 65 kilometers per hour in the Marmara Sea, battering the city particularly heavily on its European side.
Winds felled trees throughout the districts of Şişli, Ümraniye and Çatalca, also tearing the roof off a primary school in Beylikdüzü, a district on the far western side of the city. No casualties were reported.
