On Sept. 9, torrential rains in Istanbul,Turkey flooded much of the city’s Ikitelli section. Among the buildings flooded by the rising waters was a Vodafone data center (see news mentions at Total Telecom and a Turkish news site). The event was captured on the data center’s security cameras, and the video has been posted online. The video begins with a view from the security area, where a shallow layer of water is quickly transformed into a flood that levels furniture. At about the 6:15 mark the view shifts to the raised floor area, which soon takes on water as well. This video runs about 8 minutes.
