“So far, our 20 300 citizens have been evacuated from the quake-hit area,” said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the briefing in Kahramanmarash, APA reports.

Erdogan added that these figures do not apply those who returned to their regions and villages, as well as those who went to their relatives: The process of creating tent villages and container villages continues. Currently, 461,000 of our citizens are accommodated in tents, dormitories and other similar places. The number of tents set up in Kahramanmarash alone is about 77,000.”
