There were such tremors from the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria today that it is becoming difficult to keep track of the dead bodies. After 100 years, the whole world has seen such a severe earthquake. There were three strong earthquakes one after another in Turkey today. The first strong tremor of the earthquake occurred with a magnitude of 7.8, the second aftershock with 7.6 and the third with a magnitude of 6.0. So far more than 2,300 people have died in this earthquake, while more than 5,000 people have been injured. The death toll is continually increasing.
The buildings collapsed like letters
In this devastating earthquake, many buildings collapsed like playing cards and many cities turned into a heap of rubble. The death scene is visible in every way. Hundreds of people are still believed to be trapped under rubble, and the death toll is expected to rise as rescuers search for people trapped under rubble in cities and towns across the region. On both sides of the border, people left their houses in the cold, rainy and snowy night, fearing the terrible earthquake that occurred at dawn. The buildings turned into piles lying on the ground.
Aftershocks in Lebanon, Syria, Cyprus, Israel and Palestine
A strong quake was felt in southern Turkey near the Syrian border at 4:17 a.m. local time, and a few minutes after the first, second and third strong aftershocks were felt. Turkey was hit by three devastating earthquakes in a row of magnitude 7.8, 7.6 and 6.0. Many people are still trapped in the rubble of the buildings, which members of the relief and rescue teams are trying to remove. These seismic tremors have also been felt in Lebanon, Syria, Cyprus, Israel and Palestine, including Turkey.
Thousands of people have died even before the earthquake in Turkey
Today there was an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 in Turkey, before that in 1939 there was an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 in which more than 32 thousand people died. In 1999, there was an earthquake in Izmit, Turkey, which killed more than 17,000 people. In 1784, an earthquake of a similar scale occurred in Erzincan, in which more than 5 thousand people died.
