Original Message The earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.3 struck eastern Turkey at 1:41 p.m. (6:41 a.m. ET), the U.S. Geological Survey said. It said the quake had a depth of 4.5 miles, which is shallow and could potentially cause more damage.
Turkey's Kandilli observatory gave it a preliminary magnitude of 6.6 but put its depth at 3 miles. Several aftershocks as strong as magnitude 5.5 followed, the observatory said.
The quake's epicenter was in the village of Tabanli in eastern Van province, bordering Iran.
