CNN speaks to Turks still desperately searching for loved ones

CNN's Jomana Kharadsheh reports from Adana, Turkey, where survivors of the earthquake that has killed thousands of people in Turkey and Syria are still desperately searching for their loved ones. #CNN #News


  1. Very very sad. Trapped people waiting to be rescued are also dying away. Hopefully more people can still be rescued. Praying, donating money or supplies all can help! Do whatever we can to help them!

    “During the 1989 earthquake in California, a father had only one thought: “My son is waiting for me.” He dug for 8 hours, 12 hours, 24 hours, 36 hours, and no one came to stop him . His face was covered with dust, his eyes were bloodshot, his body was tattered, and blood was everywhere. At the 38th hour, he suddenly heard a child’s voice from the ground: “Dad, is that you?” Dad shouted : “Amand, my boy!”.

    This story shows that although miracles make us very lucky, the ability of faith will produce great power. People want to succeed in doing things, they must believe that they can succeed; Have the belief that “I will definitely be able to change my habits”, and learn to use the power of the mind to completely change myself. This is cultivating the mind.” – Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door Master Lu

    1. Donations? Lol No thanks. Too much of my tax money already goes to the other side of the world to be given to people who hate us.

  2. Just leaving this here.. My heart goes to the entire community for Amazons AMT99X building up something which is worth it for everyone. This is so smart by them to launch and shatter the doubts and fears of the common folk, which was misplaced by all the drama we had last years. Everyone knows the state of inflation and recession now and the way out is already in progress. Now it’s just about catching the big fish, ya feelin?

  3. We really need to talk about Amazons AMT99X I think it’s going to make 2023 to be the best year of the entire 2000-range

  4. What a terrible thing to go through—waiting and hoping for loved ones to be found alive under the rubble. My heart goes out to all who are suffering this trauma in Turkey and Syria.

    1. As a Turk I wanna thank you personally gör your kindness and beautiful heart.we are going through the worst experience of our lifetime and we are grateful for your thoughts

    1. Maybe the only US news source. It is all over the Israeli news sites. Perhaps that is because the quake was felt there as well, or perhaps it is because Israel was the first country to respond, not just with medical aid, but with earthmovers. (That Cat, shown removing rubble was probably one of many, sent from Israel. And they are also reporting on helping Syrians, as well. So are BBC (UK), CBC (Canada) and DW (Germany). Other countries are less myopic. These channels are also discussing the poor building codes, which allowed so many to die, as their home pancaked.

  5. I’m broken hearted and speechless I was taught not to question God all I can do is send my prayers 🙏🏿

    1. Either an all-powerful God sent the earthquakes in the first place or he had no power to prevent them. Either way, God hasn’t been much use to the 20K people crushed to death in the rubble. I don’t think he’s going to help any of the survivors after he already killed so many.

  6. 0:45 The amount of loss, pain and suffering is absolutely devastating! I’m no expert, but wouldn’t it make sense to use a Parabolic Dish to enhance sound while searching for survivors? A Parabolic Dish can pickup audio from as far as 54 yards/ 164 feet away!

  7. Our loving planet is telling us time is up.This earthquake is not the last we are just like any other species. Earthquake don’t kill buildings do.Shame on the turkey government not improving their buildings earthquake proof

  8. I live from Adana, Turkey. I have experienced two major earthquakes, I am fine, but the people living in other provinces are not well, I would like to thank all of you for your prayers and support… 🙏

  9. 💛💚💜🧡🤎💓💙🤍God is with you all! My prayers are with you 🙏🏼🖤💛
