A super strong earthquake measuring 7.8 occurred at 4.15 (4.15am) in Gaziantep, in Cental Turkey.
This quake was felt as far as Jerusalem throughout the region in Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, Israel.
Gaziantep, historically and still informally called Aintab or Antep, is a major city and capital of the Gaziantep Province, in the westernmost part of Turkey’s Southeastern Anatolia Region and partially in the Mediterranean Region, approximately 185 km east of Adana and 97 km north of Aleppo, Syria.
Several aftershocks are being recorded within minutes after the first earthquake.
Not many people should be on the streets at 4.15 am, but the potential of such a quake is enormous.
This fast-paced and epicurean city has around 180 pastry shops producing the world’s best pistachio baklava. Other culinary treats are also on offer for adventurous foodie travellers.
