A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck near the city of Gaziantep in Turkey, killing thousands across Turkey and Syria this is the worst earthquake to hit the region in a century!

Following this a 7.5 magnitude earthquake caused further deaths and destruction across the Elbistan district of Turkeys Kahramanmaras province.

A third earthquake of 6.0 magnitude followed within hours of the first, causing complete havoc and despair for communities across Turkey and Syria, leaving thousands injured and many more expected deaths.

There have so far been over 21,000 deaths - and the number is expected to rise.

Devastated regions across Turkey and Syria have also experienced storms bringing heavy winds, rain and snow, making it extremely difficult for rescue teams who are desperate to find survivors of the earthquakes.
