5.5 earthquake shakes Turkey

The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported that a 5.5-magnitude earthquake hit southern Turkey on Tuesday at 08:44 local time (05:44 GMT).

The exact location of the epicenter was located at 65 kilometers (40.3 miles) from the city of Osmaniye and 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) from the city of Kozan in southern Turkey.

The agency estimates that the depth of the quake is 10 kilometers (6.2 miles).

According to the head of the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD), Yunus Sezer, there were casualties that resulted from the quake.

"At the moment, there are no negative situations after the magnitude 5.5 earthquake that occurred at 08:44 in Kozan district of Adana province," Sezer said on Twitter.

According to the EMSC, the quake ranks among the strongest six that struck the area since 05:00 local time (02:00 GMT).

AFAD said that the quake may be one of the aftershocks of the powerful January 6 earthquake that claimed the lives of over 50,000 people.

Quake in Morocco 2,122 deaths

The representative of the Moroccan Ministry of Health in al-Haouz province says conditions are stable in the quake-affected region's health sector

The Moroccan Ministry of Interior announced on Sunday that the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that struck the North African country on Friday has claimed the lives of 2,122 people and injured 2,421, many of whom are in serious condition.

Local Moroccan newspaper Hespress cited the Ministry as saying that the number of deaths in the al-Haouz region reached 1351, while it reached 492 in the Taroudant region, 201 in the Chichaoua region, and 17 in the Marrakesh prefecture.

It added that no new deaths were recorded in the prefectures and regions of Ouarzazate, Azilal, Agadir Idaoutan, Greater Casablanca, Youssoufia, and Tinghir.

This comes as rescue teams hastened their operations in search of possible survivors under the rubble left by the earthquake that destroyed many villages south of Marrakesh. Troops and emergency services also scrambled to reach remote mountain villages where victims are still feared trapped.

Large numbers of Moroccans are also flocking to blood donation centers in response to the appeal of health authorities, who urged citizens to donate blood to help treat the injured.

Moroccan authorities have opened several blood donation centers in various cities of the country, especially in major cities, such as Casablanca.

Blood is one of the most needed supplies in hospitals in such circumstances, as thousands of surgical operations are performed simultaneously and continuously in more than one hospital in areas affected by the earthquake.

Morocco mourned today the victims of the earthquake after King Mohamed VI declared on Saturday a three-day national mourning.

On Sunday, the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Observatory (EMSC) confirmed it had recorded a 4.5-magnitude earthquake, 77 km southwest of the Moroccan city of Marrakesh.

The President of the National Syndicate for the Moroccan Press, Abdallah Bakkali, told Al Mayadeen that the body formed a crisis cell to monitor the conditions of journalists and their professional performance and warn against the circulation of false news.

The National Institute of Geophysics in Morocco reported that the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that struck southwest of Marrakesh with its epicenter in the al-Haouz province was the most violent that the North African country has witnessed in a century.

The earthquake zone extends over the High Atlas Mountains, which includes many mostly remote villages, which can make rescue operations difficult, as most of the houses in those villages are traditional and do not respect earthquake-resistant conditions.

In the mountain village of Tafeghaghte near the quake's epicenter, virtually no buildings were left standing.

Civil Defense Colonel Hicham Choukri who is heading relief operations told state television earlier that the epicenter and strength of the earthquake created "an exceptional emergency situation."

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said it was mobilizing resources to support the Moroccan Red Crescent, but its Middle East and North Africa director, Hossam Elsharkawi, warned that "we are looking at many months if not years of response."

On his part, the representative of the Moroccan Ministry of Health in al-Haouz province, Moulay Abdelmalek al-Mansouri confirmed on Sunday that conditions are stable in the region's health sector.

Moroccan King Mohammed VI issued on Saturday directives to take urgent measures in response to the state of emergency resulting from the earthquake, including forming a ministerial committee to provide assistance in rebuilding destroyed homes.

Earthquakes are frightening things but the difference in reporting and support for those trapped is terrifying, over 50,000 mostly Kurds died in February but few people rushed to help them and sanctions prevented help reaching Syrian Kurds

Overnight earthquakes in Duhok

Three earthquakes were recorded overnight in Kirkuk and Duhok, with the strongest reaching a 4.7 magnitude on the Richter scale, Iraq’s meteorology and seismology organization said on Monday

Just after midnight, a 3.1 magnitude earthquake was recorded near the Kurdistan Region-Turkish border, 33 kilometers away from Duhok, and then was followed by a 4.6 magnitude tremor in the same area six minutes later. In between the two quakes in Duhok province, a 4.7 magnitude tremor was recorded in Kirkuk province.

Social media users said they had felt the overnight tremors in Erbil and Mosul, with videos online showing people leave their buildings and go outside in fear of aftershocks.

The Kurdistan Region is in an active earthquake zone. In November 2017, a 7.3 magnitude earthquake killed 10 people and injured more than 500. It caused considerable damage to buildings, mainly in the areas of Darbandikhan, Halabja, Kalar, and Khanaqin.

The meteorology and seismology organization said in its monthly report for August that they had recorded 19 earthquakes in Iraq, with 12 originating from the country and the Kurdistan Region, while the others were aftershocks from neighboring countries.

In February, the shockwaves of the devastating earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria were felt in the Kurdistan Region’s capital of Erbil. Although it did not cause any casualties or severe damage, the tremor sent frightened people running out of their homes.

Experts have also repeatedly warned that buildings in Iraq and Kurdistan Region are at risk in the face of strong earthquakes.
