Southeasth Turkey Earthquake. 7 February 2023. Live blog

My younger sister, a judge, and her husband, a prosecutor, both stationed in Gaziantep, got permission to move to another city. They have a little boy so that they will work online for a while. They spent the night in a newly built prison last night. A close friend of mine who is a manager of a textile factory in Malatya is in good health, but he could reach many of his employees in the city yet.

Turkish presidency Communication Office was quick to call citizens to inform “disinformation” spreaders. There is a flood of false news for sure, but this effort seems to aim at preventing citizen complaints about the failures in rescue efforts.
