On the 6th, a strong earthquake occurred in Turkey and Syria. At around 4:00 a.m. on the same day, a magnitude 7.8 (USGS) earthquake occurred 17.9 km underground, about 33 km inland from Gaziantep, a city in southern Turkey. Around 1:00 PM, a 7.5 magnitude earthquake followed at another location.
Reuters and others reported that the death toll from the earthquake soared to more than 7,800. “The earthquake killed 5,894 people and injured more than 34,000 people in Turkey,” Vice President Puat Okthai Turkiye said on the 7th.
