Today, Turkey was slammed by three powerful earthquakes with magnitudes of 7.8, 7.6, and 6.0, killing more than 2,600 people and wounding tens of thousands more. In Turkey and neighbouring Syria, there are deaths and destruction. The most recent two earthquakes occurred hours after the first deadly 7.8-magnitude quake. According to Reuters, the situation got worse because of the severe weather in the earthquake-affected areas.
Aid is being rushed by India and other nations. The Turkish government was contacted by PM Narendra Modi. The Prime Minister declared that India “stands in sympathy with the people of Turkey and is prepared to offer all possible assistance to cope with this tragedy.” The administration has made the decision to send relief supplies, medical teams, and rescue crews.
