Major earthquake rocks Greece and Turkey: 24 dead, 800 injured

Oct 30, 2020 19:40 IST

24 people were killed and hundreds injured Friday in Turkey when a powerful earthquake struck the country's western coast and parts of Greece, the Turkish officials said.

The powerful quake caused a sea surge that flooded streets in the Turkish resort city of Izmir. Greek public television said the quake also caused a mini-tsunami on the eastern Aegean Sea island of Samos, damaging buildings.

Images from Izmir showed collapsed buildings and dazed people trying to make their way through rubble piled high on the streets
