A tour boat in the Turkish Mediterranean with dozens of people on board capsized Saturday in a heavy rainstorm, authorities said, and 73 people have so far been rescued, according to Anadolu Agency.

Antalya Governor Munir Karaloglu told Anadolu Agency that the boat, the Kurt-Ceyhan, left a yacht port in Kaleici, in the resort town of Antalya, southern Turkey, before capsizing off the coast of Konyaalti, some 26.5 kilometers (16.4 miles away).

The governor said that Turkish Coast Guard and marine police teams arrived at the scene and managed to rescue 73 people.

There are no reports of casualties, but Karaloglu said search and rescue operations continue.
