Today we have news of a major earthquake in Van in the east of Turkey. The latest news reports up to 1000 fatalities.
My heart goes out to the people of Van tonight. This is such a tragedy. The worst earthquake here for a decade.
Some of my blogging friends in Turkey have already posted about this, but Karen at Being Koy has repeated some information she first circulated in 2006 about being prepared for earthquakes. It's great advice...please read if you live in a country such as ours which is always at risk from earthquakes.
