(Gaziantep, Turkey) -- Turkey is reeling after another powerful earthquake, this one a magnitude 7.5, following just hours after a deadly magnitude 7.8 quake.

Between that country and Syria, over 13-hundred people are believed to have been killed and thousands more injured.

U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan says President Biden has directed USAID to assess all response options.

Multiple other countries have offered assistance, with some predicting up to if not over 10,000 people could have died from the violent natural event.
