Turkey quake, How’s My Friend?
I like Turkey. They are nice people. How do I know? Well, I lived with a Turkey student, together with other two students. We had a very good time. And to me, the Turkey student helped me a lot. Of course also the other two students.
Now I just heard that there was a earthquake today in eastern Turkey, killing at least 138 people as buildings pancaked and crumpled into rubble.
According to ANKARA, Turkey (AP), Cries of panic and horror filled the air as a magnitude-7.2 earthquake struck eastern Turkey. The death toll was expected to rise as rescuers sifted through the rubble and reached outlying villages.
Tens of thousands fled into the streets running, screaming or trying to reach relatives on cell phones as apartment and office buildings cracked or collapsed. As the full extent of the damage became clear, survivors dug in with shovels or even their bare hands, desperately trying to rescue the trapped and the injured.
“There are many people under the rubble,” Veysel Keser, the mayor of the district of Celebibag, told NTV. “People are in agony. We can hear their screams for help.” Find out more about Turkey quake.
