On the one hand, the earthquake has hit hard, and on the other hand, the weather is not good either. According to meteorologists, there are going to be many difficulties in the rescue work around the epic center.
Within 24 hours, 3 strong earthquakes have caused havoc in Turkey. These tremors were felt not only in Turkey, but also in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Israel, Cyprus, Greece, Georgia and Jordan. In Turkey, the situation looks more dire and the death toll has reached the 4 digits (about 1150). This is followed by the number of Syria where about 800 people have slept their death so far.
In Turkey, it is said that the cold night and the intermittent rain between the icy winds have put the people in a bit more trouble. Hundreds of people have died and thousands of people have been injured due to the 7.8 magnitude earthquake. The death toll is rising rapidly. The scene at the time of the earthquake was terrifying as people were running out of their homes, screaming and searching eyes everywhere. About 3000 buildings were destroyed in this earthquake. After Turkey, the highest losses have been recorded in Syria.
Those who are keeping a close eye on this news say that the work of relief and rescue is very difficult in the coming time. On the one hand, the earthquake has hit hard, and on the other hand, the weather is not good either. According to meteorologists, there are going to be many difficulties in the rescue work around the epic center. Chances of heavy rains cannot be ruled out. While temperatures are registering 3 to 4 degrees during the day, the night will be freezing. 3 to 5 cm of snow is also being predicted.
According to reports, the first earthquake was of magnitude 7.8, while the second after 12 hours was of magnitude 7.5. Thousands of people affected by the first earthquake are still buried in the rubble and the second earthquake has created more terror. Those who have survived appear to have suffered badly. After two earthquakes, someone was seen running with a child in his lap, while someone was looking for himself in the scattered debris. A third earthquake with a magnitude of about 6 occurred in the midst of all of them. These three earthquakes have also terrorized the people engaged in rescue and relief work. A hospital in Turkey also collapsed in the earthquake, from which newborns and patients were evacuated safely with great difficulty. Some hospital buildings were also affected in Syria from where the patients were evacuated and sent to other hospitals.
