Izmir: A strong earthquake of magnitude 7 struck between the Turkish coast and the Greek island of Samos, collapsing several buildings in Turkey’s western Izmir province and leaving at least four people dead on Friday. Over 120 were injured.

Turkey’s Health Minister Fahrettin Koca tweeted that four people were killed in Izmir and 120 were injured.

He added that 38 ambulances, two ambulance helicopters and 35 medical rescue teams were working in Izmir.

On Samos, some damage to buildings and the road network and four light injuries were reported.

The United States Geological Survey put the quake’s magnitude at 7.0.

The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre said it had a preliminary magnitude of 6.9 with an epicenter 8 miles north-northeast of Samos.

It is common for preliminary magnitudes to differ in the early hours and days after a quake. Multiple aftershocks struck the region.

Turkish media showed wreckage of a multiple-story building in central Izmir, with people climbing it to reach rescuers. Smoke was filmed in several spots in central Izmir.

Turkish media said the earthquake was felt across the regions of Aegean and Marmara, where Istanbul is located. Istanbul’s governor said there were no reports of damage.
