    Powerful Earthquake Rocks Turkey, Greece; Tsunami Reported

    A powerful earthquake in the Aegean Sea rocked Turkey and Greece on Friday. The quake's epicenter is off Turkey's Aegean coast, north of the Greek island of Samos.



    Turkey's Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency said the quake was in the Aegean Sea at a depth of 10.3 miles. Seismometers in the area measured the quake at 6.6 magnitude. The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake measured at 7.0.
    There are no official reports on casualties and or the destruction the quake left behind, but local media and citizen journalists report collapsed structures throughout Izmir, Turkey.


    Social media users are also reporting a tsunami has struck the area.

    izmir is my hometown. i spoke with my family, they were really scared. there are some buildings that collapsed. 4 casualities were reported. everybody's outside now and probably people will stay in their cars tonight.

    by the way izmir is an earthquake zone - from time to time 5 or 5,5 magnitudes happen but this one was one of the strongest. in the video that shows the minor-tsunami, the lady in the video says "dont be afraid, this happens after earthquakes, we are get used to it" !

    260 km close to the earthquake, in Athens, we were shaken a lot. Always nice to see Earth giving us wake up calls.
