Mangalore Today News Network

Istanbul, Feb 07, 2023: A 5.6 magnitude earthquake struck the central Turkey region on Tuesday, hours after three devastating earthquakes hit Turkey and Syria on Monday, killing more than 4,000 people. Thousands more are injured and the search for survivors is on. Many countries, including India, are sending in supplies and relief teams.



The death toll is feared to go up as rescue teams search through the rubble. The epicentre of the first quake was near Nurdagi in Gaziantep province, the Syrian border. The other two quakes struck in the nearby Kahramanmaraş province. Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has declared seven days of national mourning during which the Turkish flags will fly at half-staff across the nation and at its diplomatic missions overseas.

NDRF Search and Rescue Teams, specially trained dog squads, medical supplies, drilling machines and other equipment from India left for Turkey early today morning. This was hours after PM Narendra Modi reached out to the quake-hit country.
