New earthquake of 6.4 in Turkey

A 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck Turkey on Monday as the country is still recovering from one of the worst natural disasters in its history.

The quake was centered in Samandag, located in Hatay province, which suffered catastrophic damage in the February 6 quake.

According to reports, there are several civilians injured by falling debris. In addition, in Jenderes, north of Aleppo, two uninhabited buildings and the minaret of a mosque collapsed.

In a Turkish camp for 700 people made homeless by the earlier earthquake, buildings shook for about 15 seconds around 8 p.m. local time and lights went out in the distance.

Most of the people in the camp were sitting outside huddled around the fire to get warm when the quake struck. Many began to pray and yell to get away from the buildings.

Monday’s quake comes as Turkish and Syrian officials announced that the death toll from the quake that struck two weeks ago has reached a total of 46,957, with 41,156 in Turkey and 5,801 in Syria.
