Your depth is wrong. It’s a very shallow quake at 7.2km deep.
The Magnitude has also been revised to 7.3

Actually we dont need help from christians or muslims we can get rid of all bad conditions by ourselfs because we are Turks. And it is not a good thing to discriminate people as muslims or christians.”MS-92758″ you should learn humanism. Maybe one day you can come across with this kind of a disaster.

Hey, MS92758, if you are not sharing the same sky, same air and the same planet with those people who are as you said Muslim, ok, let them help each other, but I wonder where you are living; on Saturn or Venus or maybe Mars, huh? Stop being a racist, and do something for people.. Remember, today is to them, what if tomorrow would happen to you???
