It has been over a week since two catastrophic, 7.8 and 7.6 magnitude earthquakes hit southern Turkey and northern Syria. First earthquake hit at 4:17 am local time when everyone was asleep. People woke up in shock, tried to escape but earthquake was so severe many of them could not get out of the falling buildings. Whole towns and villages collapsed like dominoes with thousands trapped under the rubble. Over 33,000 deaths have been reported so far and countless are injured with hundreds of thousands internally displaced in both countries, sleeping in open often sub-zero conditions as the buildings that still stand, in disaster hit areas, are not safe to return.
