A powerful earthquake (6.7 on the Richter scale) took place off the southern coast of Turkey. According to Daily Mail, the epicenter was located about six kilometers away from the resort city of Bodrum.
The underground shakes began at about 1.30 a.m., causing a small tsunami, specialists of European Seismology Centre said.
BBC reports at least two dead and 70 injured, with fatalities having occurred on the Greek island of Kos.
‘Pictures on social media showed people in Bodrum walking with water lapping their ankles and localised flooding,’ the British outlet wrote.
