Turkey Earthquake: Residents Are Shocked As A New Earthquake Hits Turkey And Syria: Updates

After Monday’s 6.3-magnitude earthquake, which shook the same region severely damaged by earthquakes two weeks ago that killed almost 45,000 people and demolished thousands of buildings, shocked and struggling residents of Turkey and Syria are facing new trauma and challenges.

According to Turkey’s disaster management agency on Monday, six people were killed and 300 injured, including 18 critically. According to pro-government media outlets, two people died in Syria’s Hama and Tartus provinces: a woman and a girl. There have also been reports of people jumping from buildings to get away.

A new wave of people was forced to flee into the chilly streets of Aleppo and Latakia after Monday’s earthquake damaged buildings that had survived the earlier quakes.

Turkey’s disaster and emergency agency reported the 6.4 earthquakes with a depth of 10 kilometres at 20:04 local time (17:04 GMT) (6.2 miles).

This was followed by dozens of smaller aftershocks, including a 5.8 aftershock three minutes later.

When the most recent earthquakes struck, 18-year-old Ali Mazlum told the AFP news agency that he was searching for the finds of family members from the earlier quakes.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan pledged to hold those accountable for the subpar construction that contributed to the initial earthquake’s fatalities a fortnight ago during a visit to the southern province of Osmaniye.

People in Adana were forced to go to a volleyball court that had been converted into a rescue facility after the previous earthquake.

According to the authorities, up to 600 people may have arrived overnight searching for a strong, ground-floor structure to take safety in.

People were said to have fled their homes when the earthquake hit, demonstrating that there is still a great deal of fear two weeks after the initial disaster.

Following the quakes on Monday, which were also reportedly felt in Egypt and Lebanon, it is reported that 470 injured people visited hospitals in Syria.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced $100 million (£83 million) in humanitarian aid during a visit to Turkey on Monday. He added that the US would support the earthquake recovery effort “for as long as it takes.”

Following the initial earthquake, it is one of many nations that have provided help.

Except for two areas, rescue efforts have recently been scaled back, and chances of finding survivors are dwindling quickly.
