The massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Turkey on Sunday was devastating and now authorities fear that there may be as many as 20,000 deaths from the series of quakes.

The earthquake in Turkey was calamitous. Conservative Treehouse reported:

According to the Associated Press, 5,600 buildings have collapsed and several of them came down today during aftershocks amid search and rescue operations. The current recorded death toll is over 4,300 people, with the World Health Organization (WHO) predicting the total loss of life could exceed 20,000. This is just horrific.

The estimated 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit over an area of several major population centers. The Guardian reports, “the population of the ten provinces in southern Turkey affected by the earthquakes are home to 13.5 million people. So far, according to the Andalou agency, more than 5,600 buildings have collapsed.

It is just after 6am in Turkey, and we’re seeing stories of people rescued after a very long day and night, which means they survived not only the rubble’s collapse but the cold. There are many, many more who have not yet been found, with the WHO predicting the death toll could reach 20,000 in the coming days. For now, here are videos of a three-year-old toddler and a woman who were freed from collapsed buildings by rescuers.” (link)

An ancient castle dating back to the Roman and Byzantine empires was destroyed in Turkey following the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that rocked the country and neighboring Syria in the early hours of Monday morning.

Gaziantep Castle, built initially as a watchtower between the second and fourth centuries AD under the Romans, collapsed in the earthquake that saw roughly 2,824 other buildings destroyed, CBS News reported.
