Earthquake Hits Turkey’s Kahramanmaraş

A magnitude 5.0 earthquake hit Turkey’s southern Kahramanmaraş province on Friday, the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) said.

This comes as the country grapples with the aftermath of the devastating Feb. 6 quakes in the country’s southern region that have claimed at least 45,089 lives.

The February 6 magnitude 7.7 and 7.6 quakes, centred in Kahramanmaras, have impacted some 13.5 million people across 10 other provinces, including Hatay, Gaziantep, Adıyaman, Malatya, Adana, Diyarbakır, Kilis, Osmaniye, Şanlıurfa and Elazığ.

Also, more than 617,500 people have been evacuated by planes from the quake-hit provinces in southeastern Türkiye.

On today’s quake, no news about casualties has been reported.
