On October 30, 2020, a devastating earthquake struck the Aegean region of Turkey. 

The earthquake had a magnitude of 7.0 on the Richter scale and its epicenter was located in the Izmir province. 

The earthquake caused widespread damage to buildings and infrastructure in the area.

Reports from the Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management Authority indicate that at least 115 people were killed and more than 1,000 were injured in the earthquake. 

The death toll is expected to rise as rescue and recovery efforts continue.

The earthquake triggered a small tsunami in the Aegean Sea, which caused flooding in the coastal areas. 

Many buildings, including several apartment blocks, were destroyed or severely damaged by the earthquake. 

The rescue teams worked tirelessly to search for survivors trapped in the rubble.

Many people were left homeless and had to take shelter in emergency tents and temporary housing facilities.

Turkey is located in a seismically active area, and earthquakes are not uncommon. However, the scale of the damage caused by this earthquake was particularly severe.
