A M5.0 earthquake shook Turkey’s southeastern Siirt province on Thursday morning, at 08:45 a.m. local time (0545GMT).

The shallow quake hit at a depth of 10 km (6.1 miles) near Kozluk, Batman, Turkey.

Many news agencies are reporting no damage. But these reports are not close to reality.

The quake has been widely felt in the area, with people running out of their crumbling offices:

shaking supermarkets:

and houses crackling down:

Turkey is crisscrossed by fault lines. The country was also hit by two strong tremors this year. The first one hit near the port of Izmir last month, killing 117 people, and the other one struck the province of Elazig, killing 41 people, back in january 2020.
