Almost 50,000 people (more than 47,000 as of February 21st) were killed when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck southeast Turkey and neighboring Syria on February 6, followed by a 6.4 aftershock on February 20. Thousands are still trapped under rubble and many more have lost their homes in the cold, winter conditions.
