The Second Türkiye–Syria Earthquake

The Second Türkiye–Syria Earthquake


“What happened in the second 2023 Türkiye–Syria earthquake?”

Türkiye and Syria are already reeling from the last great earthquake. But on February 20th, a fresh magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck the Türkiye–Syria border region near Antakya/Antioch. This has only added more issues to the already-strained region and shows why earthquakes come in multiples. 

As of writing, victims of the 2023 Türkiye – Syria earthquake are continuing to face great difficulties in their daily life. To make a difference, please make a donation to organizations such as the Syrian White Helmets and the Anatolian Arts Institute Earthquake Relief Fund. My friends are also connecting donations to small municipalities and vetted organizations through the venmo account @earthquake-relief. Anything you send will go a long way.
