An Additional Earthquake in Turkey Today

According to the Associated Press, a 7 year old handicapped girl died in Ercis on Friday, of pneumonia. Following the original earthquakes, she and her family had as yet been unable to obtain a proper tent and had been living in a very cold makeshift one. These losses to exposure are likely to continue in Turkey. Today, an additional quake of 5.2 occured, also in the Van province.
Please keep the survivors in Turkey in your thoughts and prayers. Use this time also to consider how you and your family would survive, even for a few days in the midst of a severe earthquake in your region.
