About the event
Personal stories and guidance on how to help Two earthquakes with magnitudes of 7.8 and 7.6 hit Turkey within a span of 10 hours on February 6. More than 160,000 buildings across 11 provinces either collapsed or were severely damaged. Officially, more than 58,000 people died in Turkey and in neighboring Syria. Many believe the loss of life and property to be much greater than the official numbers. Our panelists, who are from Turkey and still have family there, will share the current situation on the ground, personal stories about the earthquake, and how you can help with earthquake relief.
