Earthquake in Turkey

I just learn there was 7.2 quake in Turkey. We have a few WT members who live there and I hope everyone is alright as well as their families and friends.

Ditto. Hope most have come through unscathed.

It is her husbands home town. MY daughter met him while visiting the area with her Turkish housemate who was a friend of Gem's( her husband) family. After a couple of years of visiting him they married a year or so ago. Miss her something awful.

Well it was a very powerfull quake (over 7) about 600 died and 3000 injured but compare to its power these figures are relatively low. The bad part is yet to come, Van (name is the city) is a very very cold place and the winter is blasting there, tents aren't enough to protect anyone, I have donated about 10 blankets which was the best I could think of.

My brother's wife is from Denizli but we all live in Istanbul as for Denizli i can say that it's a beatiful, medium sized city but there is not lots of things to do. I'm happy to see such a thread. Thanks everybody
