WHAT HAPPENED IN TURKEY?
An earthquake struck with a magnitude of up to 7.0 in the Aegean Sea on Friday that had a cataclysmic effect on Turkey and Greece, and especially in the Turkish city of Izmir. People ran here and there in panic. Located on Turkey’s Aegean coast, Izmir is the country’s third-largest city.
Ragip Soylu, Turkish journalist, tweeted a video that showed a particular area deluged with surging seawater in Izmir. Houses were submerged as water flowed through the neighbourhood, carrying furniture and other household items along with it.
“Another tsunami footage from the earthquake in Izmir province of Turkey. This one is really dangerous,” Ragip Soylu said in the caption of his post.
