|Jeff’s latest … and ZOOM registration for live ZOOM event tomorrow/Wednesday/22nd|
About 1 hour ago (sent Monday, Jeff’s time), another earthquake struck the historic city of Antioch.
|ANTAKYA, Turkey (Reuters) -A magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck the Turkey-Syria border region late on Monday, setting off panic and damaging buildings in Turkey’s Antakya city two weeks after the country’s worst earthquake in modern history left tens of thousands dead.|
Two Reuters witnesses reported a strong quake and further damage to buildings in central Antakya, where it was centered. It was also felt in Egypt and Lebanon, Reuters reporters said.
The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) said the tremor struck at a depth of 2 km (1.2 miles). Other witnesses said Turkish rescue teams were running around after the latest quake, checking people were unharmed.
Muna Al Omar, a resident, said she was in a tent in a park in central Antakya when the earthquake hit. “I thought the earth was going to split open under my feet,” she said, crying as she held her 7-year-old son in her arms. “Is there going to be another aftershock?” she asked.
The two larger earthquakes that hit on Feb. 6, which also rocked neighboring Syria, left more than a million homeless and killed far more than the latest official tally of 46,000 people in both countries.
|Our soup kitchens are up and running|
|We are scheduled to be in Antioch/Antakya on Wednesday. With the new earthquake, it makes everything much more real. It is uncertain what new destruction awaits us. I will be in the earthquake region with a team of nine Turks & Americans. We will be looking for the Hidden & the Hurting and places to serve, not just this week but for the months to come. We are looking to increase the effectiveness and impact of the aid you have provided.|
|As I said last week, we will be giving a live report from the devastated region on Wednesday, 11 am (EST), 8 am (Calif), 5 pm (Geneva). You will need to register beforehand. Click on the picture above, or use this link – https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJEqcuiqrjwuHtJhSA0Q9k0FnUYW9-xyPbGZ|

Thank you for your concern and prayers for the people of Turkey & Syria.

One thought on “ZOOM into Turkey-Syria quake … You Are Welcomed!”
So nice to see Dan & Nora enjoying coffee and time together. I am so very sorry about the quakes and all the damage that has occurred and the missing and deaths. It appears worse than a war zone. There is no way to understand their loss and grief.
