The devastating earthquakes that hit southern Turkey on Feb. 6, 2023, have caused widespread destruction, death and injury. The 7.8-magnitude earthquake, which began at 4:17 a.m. local time Monday, is being described as one of the most powerful to hit Turkey in nearly 75 years.
The disaster has resulted in the collapse of thousands of homes, apartment complexes, and many other large buildings. Thousands of people are believed to have died, and many thousands more have had to flee their homes and seek shelter in mosques and other community centers. Cold January temperatures and wet weather are adding to the misery.
