NewsToday: According to the American Seismological Center, the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria could result in more than 10,000 fatalities. A 7.8-magnitude earthquake that struck late at night prevented people from fleeing, quickly reduced high-rise structures to rubble, and was followed by more than 50 aftershocks that lasted for many hours. The earthquake devastated Turkey and Syria. Over 2,600 people have died in both nations combined. However, the US Seismological Center published a study on the number of fatalities brought on by earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.
The news stated that the death toll from the 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Turkey and Syria is anticipated to be more than 10,000 due to the extreme cold, the delay in removing individuals buried under the wreckage of buildings, and the widespread destruction. There is a growing sense of fear. According to the American Seismological Center, there is a 47% chance that the earthquake between Turkey and Syria would result in 1,000 to 10,000 fatalities and a 20% chance that the death toll will range from 10,000 to 100,000.
It should be emphasized that the earthquake in Turkey resulted in 1651 fatalities and hundreds of injuries. According to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the number of fatalities caused by the earthquake in Turkey cannot yet be determined. On the other hand, 968 people have died and hundreds have been injured as a result of the earthquake in Syria.
