Deadly Turkey Quake Highlights Poor Construction

Ad Feedback

The situation in Turkey is growing desperate following Sunday's deadly 7.2-magnitude earthquake.

The death toll continues to climb, and thousands are being forced to sleep outside in near-freezing temperatures.

Some quake victims blame shoddily constructed buildings for the carnage.

"Death comes from God. But what about poor construction?" asked Turkish resident Nevzat Altinkaynak. "Look at this building. It was new. It didn't even have paint on it yet!"

As authorities continue search and rescue efforts, Operation Blessing International is there, providing aid to survivors.

David Darg, the charity's director of international disaster relief, is currently in one of the area's refugee camps.
