Turkey: A 4.6 magnitude earthquake shakes Kahramanmaraş

A 4.6-magnitude earthquake struck Kahramanmaraş province in southeastern Turkey today, Saturday, according to the Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management Administration (AFAD), as reported by “Russia Today”.

According to information contained on the website of the Presidency of Disaster and Emergency Management, the earthquake was recorded in the Gokson region of the state at 11:22, and its epicenter occurred at a depth of about 8.4 kilometers underground.
