Turkey quake survivors struggling

Government assesses the scale of people's loss as survivors take to makeshift tents.

    Hundreds of villagers are struggling to cope with the aftermath of a deadly 6.0 magnitude earthquake that devastated numerous towns in northern Turkey.

    Residents have had to resort to makeshift tents and lost a great deal of livestock, which has been a severe blow to their livelihood.

    But authorities are assessing the scale of people's losses in an effort to help the  earthquake survivors.
