A 6.3-magnitude earthquake hit southern Turkey on Monday, the New York Times reports. Northwestern Syria was also affected by the quake. So far, no casualties have been reported.
The quake comes just weeks after a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake rocked the region, leaving 46,000 people dead.
Per Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Agency (AFAD), the quake struck Turkey’s southern Hatay province, which is near the Syrian border.
With the region still recovering from the earthquake that struck in early February, the latest earthquake is said to have caused panic among locals, according to the mayor of the town of Samandag.
Per The Guardian, an aftershock measuring 5.8 in magnitude struck the region shortly after. The mayor of Hatay, Lütfü Savaş, said that “some buildings were destroyed,” and that “there are some who are trapped under the rubble.”
At least 8 people have been reported injured, according to Turkey’s vice-president, Fuat Oktay.
