Videos have emerged capturing the devastating aftermath of the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that rocked southern Turkey and northern Syria early Monday, leaving more than 2,300 dead.
In footage taken in the Turkish city of Adana, which is west of the earthquake’s epicenter in Nurdagi, a massive pile of rubble could be seen following the collapse of a high-rise building.
Locals were filmed standing and staring at the debris, while a woman could be heard weeping in the background.
In another clip from the Turkish coastal city of Iskenderun, part of an apartment building is seen leaning over after the first floor appeared to collapse.
