Earthquake Turkey and Syria

Published 2/14/2023
Turkey and Syria have been hit by several strong earthquakes and aftershocks. The damage is enormous: buildings have collapsed, many thousands of people have been injured and the death toll has now risen to more than 34,000 people. Many people are unprotected in the icy cold due to the risk of collapse.
