Powerful earthquake strikes poor eastern Turkey - CNN.com

Powerful earthquake strikes poor eastern Turkey - CNN.com: "Turkey was struck by its most powerful earthquake in at least a decade Sunday, as a major tremor and at least seven aftershocks rattled the poor east of the country.
Some 25 apartment buildings and a student dormitory collapsed in the town of Ercis on the north shore of Lake Van, the Turkish Red Crescent said.
Local rescuers took many wounded people out of the dormitory, the Red Crescent statement said, without saying exactly how many.
They called for rescue workers, heavy machinery and drinking water, and set up a crisis desk in the capital Ankara."
