They caused huge loss of life and damage in southeast Turkey and in neighbouring Syria. President Erdogan warned of the danger of "large number of aftershocks". He said: "Our teams are working to reach disaster areas....We are rapidly continuing search and rescue operations...despite difficulty of the conditions and terrible weather."
