ANKARA, Turkiye: An earthquake with a magnitude 5.9 has hit a town in northwest Turkiye on Wednesday, Turkiye’s government-run Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency said.
The earthquake was centered in the town of Golkaya, in Duzce province, some 200 kilometers east of Istanbul. It was felt in Istanbul and in the capital Ankara.
The quake sent people rushing out of buildings and cut power in the area, Duzce’s mayor Faruk Ozlu told private NTV television.
