    • The damage was centered in Izmir.
    • Rescuers were searching the rubble.
    • There were reports of a tsunami.

    The quake was given a preliminary magnitude rating of 7.0 by the U.S. Geological Survey. It struck at 2:51 p.m. local time and was centered in the Aegean Sea about 8.5 miles northeast of Neon Karlovasion, on the north side of the island of Samos, off the coast of Turkey.

    Four people were dead and more than 150 injured, Turkey's disaster agency said in a news release. Search and rescue efforts were ongoing in 12 buildings in Izmir. The agency said there had been at least 33 aftershocks.

    May the FORCE be with you!
