Over a week later, the Turkish and Syrian governments are reporting over 46,000 deaths. According to the US Geological Survey, the earthquake struck 23 kilometers (14.2 miles) east of Nurdagi, in Türkiye's Gaziantep province, at a depth of 24.1 kilometers (14.9 miles). The full repercussions of the earthquake are unknown, however, emergency and aid assistance are needed in an area that is already impacted by a humanitarian crisis.
