Ad Feedback

Rescue workers are continuing their desperate search for survivors of Sunday's deadly quake in southeastern Turkey, which collapsed an estimated 2,000 buildings.

Overnight, more bodies were pulled from piles of cement, twisted steel and rubble. The death toll from Sunday's quake has reached nearly 370.

Near-freezing conditions are making it tough for thousands left homeless by the 7.2-magnitude quake, most spending a second night sleeping around campfires, some in cars or makeshift tents distributed by the Red Crescent..

Some trapped survivors are using cell phones and sending text messages to help rescue workers locate them under rubble.

One man's call from his cell phone led to his rescue and that of two children.

Rescue teams freed one who woman who had been trapped for nearly 27 hours.

CBN's Operation Blessing is working with the German Relief Organization Humedica to help the victims.
