Another quake hits Turkey

Just two weeks after a major earthquake in Turkey on 23rd October 2011, another quake, this time with a 5.6 magnitude has hit the country. In the first quake, measuring 7.2, 2000 buildings were destroyed and 60 people were killed.

It seems that many people had returned to unsafe buildings before they had been declared safe in the last feew weeks. As a result, it is thought that many more people have been killed or injured in this quake than may otherwise be expected.
