Turkey earthquake: strongest in Turkish history

Hey Girls,

This weekend I was enjoying Turkish food in Midtown and then this morning heard about the strong earthquake today in VAN, Turkey, I'm sad for this rural area and the people there, the quake was among the strongest in Turkish history, and the worst since 1999 and wanted to share the news on it with you if you haven't heard:

P.s. Think Turkey is a world away? Think again, it might be right on your back or on the handbag you're carrying. A lot of fashion manufacturing happens in Turkey. Check your clothing labels, you might be wearing a Made in Turkey shirt or dress:
