Turkey earthquake: four dead in eastern Turkey

-

The 6.7 magnitude earthquake occurred near the city of Sivrice, in the eastern province of Elazig, and collapsed at least 10 buildings, said Turkish Interior Minister Sulyman Soylu.

Fifteen aftershocks have been felt in the wake, and the strongest was recorded with a magnitude of 5.4, Soylu said. The earthquake occurred at a relatively low depth of 10 km (6 miles), according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), which improves the feeling of surface tremor.

Around 500,000 people felt strong or very strong, the USGS reported. The earthquake was felt in several other countries, including Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.

According to the initial estimates of the USGS, the damage must be “relatively localized”.
