A massive earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale struck Turkey and Syria at around 4 am on Monday, killing more than 2,600 people as buildings were reduced to rubble.

The video shows a huge multi-storey building suddenly collapsing to the ground in Turkey’s Sanliurfa province in Turkey. Authorities said 16 structures collapsed in Sanliurfa and 34 in Osmaniye, according to a report by news agency Reuters. Vast swathes have also been devastated in neighbouring Syria.

India has also sent disaster relief teams to help as several people are still buried under debris and millions have become homeless in the bitter winter cold which touches sub-zero temperatures.
