In the early hours of February 6, 2023, shocking news broke in Turkey. Naturally, many people who were awake or even asleep at the time felt it. Data from the Kandilli Observatory show that a 7.7 earthquake with a depth of just 5 kilometers occurred in Sofalaca, ┼×ehitkamil, Gaziantep. This earthquake was incredibly chaotic. During those hours, the entire country felt its effects. Following that, we felt tremors of 6, 5, 4, which are really terrifying. We were once more shaken by 7.5 at 13:24. All of this led to numerous fatalities and serious threats to life. Consequently, we all wish you luck and please, get well soon.

Pray for Turkey

We hope all is fine with you, our readers. As per usual, the earthquake’s aftermath is being dealt with, including the clearing of the debris. Therefore, if there is anything you can do to assist them, do do so. At the same time, we shouldn’t overwork the employees, roads, or phone lines unless absolutely required. Let’s all exercise caution, please. Once more, we wish Turkey a speedy recovery.

If you want to help AFAD teams, we recommend you to use AFAD’s official channels. In this way, you also help the teams working there. They need all kinds of financial and moral help. Therefore, please do not spare your help for Turkey.
