The seismic swarm continues after the powerful earthquake that devastated Turkey and Syria, causing thousands of deaths

Since yesterday evening, as reported by the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, tremors of a magnitude greater than 4.5 have continued in the area of eastern Turkey and northern Syria.

The Turkish authorities have again updated the death toll to over 3,300.

To which are added at least 1,500 victims in Syria.

But the count is constantly being updated.

And while the first aid is beginning to arrive from all over the world, the Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management Agency reports that more than 5,000 buildings have collapsed in Turkey alone.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has declared seven days of national mourning following two earthquakes measuring 7.9 and 7.5 on the Richter scale that struck ten of the country’s provinces within twelve hours: Kahramanmaras, Kilis, Diyarbakir, Adana, Osmaniye, Gaziantep, Sanlirurfa, Adiyaman, Malatya and Hatay.

Earthquake in Syria and Turkey, Unicef raises the alarm about children:

“Thousands of homes are likely to have been destroyed, displacing families and exposing them to the elements at a time of year when temperatures regularly drop below zero and snow and freezing rain are common.

Recently, heavy snowstorms have also hit parts of Syria and Turkey, and further sub-zero temperatures are expected.

Thousands of children and families are at risk’.
