3 Earthquakes Devastate Turkey, Leaving Over 3,600 Dead

The devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria on Monday, Feb 6th has resulted in a staggering loss of life. According to government sources and rescuers, 1,300 people have been confirmed dead in Syria. In Turkey, the death toll has been reported at 2,316, bringing the combined total to over 3,600. More than 12,000 people are injured in Turkey, the disaster management agency said, while Syria said at least 3,411 people were injured.

 

Despite the challenges posed by the freezing weather and the early hour of the earthquake, rescue efforts continue to be underway as responders search for survivors amidst the rubble. The emergency services in Turkey have reported that 7,340 people have been rescued so far, and 13,293 have been injured. Some of the heaviest devastation occurred near the quake’s epicenter between Kahramanmaras and Gaziantep, where entire city blocks lay in ruins under gathering snow.

 

Experts have long warned that a large quake could devastate Istanbul, a megalopolis of 16 million people filled with rickety homes. In response to the disaster, Turkey has declared seven days of mourning for the victims. The international community remains committed to offering aid and support as the country begins the difficult process of rebuilding and recovering from this tragedy.
