A magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck Samsat district in Turkey’s southeastern Adiyaman province early Tuesday, injuring 19 people, according to a regional governor. The Turkish Prime Ministry’s Disaster and Emergency Management Authority said the quake struck at 3:34 a.m. (00:34 GMT) at a depth of 7 kilometers, Anadolu reported. Speaking at a news conference ahead of his visit to Spain’s capital Madrid on Tuesday, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said no deaths had been reported so far in the district. Adiyaman Governor Nurullah Naci Kalkanci, who inspected damaged properties, told reporters that no one was badly hurt in the earthquake, but confirmed that there were reports of 19 people suffering minor injuries while escaping the tremor. Kalkanci said they would immediately distribute tents to those affected by the quake. The district governor also said eight aftershocks with magnitudes ranging from 1.4 to 2.7 hit the area within an hour.
