TOKYO -- The 7.8 magnitude earthquake that devastated large swaths of southeastern Turkey and northern Syria early Monday morning has left more than 4,300 people dead and flattened thousands of buildings. Rescue workers have been working feverishly to locate survivors amid the rubble, sometimes even using their bare hands, but the death toll from the massive earthquake is expected to rise. At least 185 aftershocks have been recorded in Turkey, the largest of which had a magnitude of 6.6.
