Earthquake registering 6.3 hits Turkey-Syria border region – EMSC

An earthquake, with a magnitude 6.3 at a depth of 2 km, struck the Turkey-Syria border region, the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) said, writes Reuters.

Two Reuters witnesses reported a strong quake and further damage to buildings in central Antakya which was hit by two massive earthquakes two weeks ago, causing tens of thousands of deaths and destroying buildings and infrastructure.

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.
