Number of injured in quake in Turkey reaches 39

The number of those injured in an earthquake in Turkey reached 39, Turkish media reported on April 24.

Reportedly, work is underway to eliminate consequences of the earthquake.

A 5.1-magnitude earthquake hit Adiyaman province this morning.

The epicenter of the tremors was located 115 kilometers northwest of Turkey’s Gaziantep city.

Turkey is located in the seismically active zone, and the country often suffers strong earthquakes, which often lead to human casualties. The strongest fluctuations of the Earth's crust in Turkey were recorded in 1999 in the Marmara sea region. The magnitude of the tremors at that time was 7.4 points and caused the death of more than 18,000 people.
