    Two earthquakes of magnitude 7.7 and 7.6 shook southeastern Turkey and part of Syria on Sunday, January 5th. As a result, more than 20,000 people have died and around 30,000 are injured in various parts of the country.

    To deal with the emergency, more than 10,000 rescue officials are working in the care of the most affected places, among the 62 rescue teams from 50 countries that offered their help.

    According to the Embassy of Costa Rica in Turkey, 18 Costa Ricans are registered in the consular register; however, this amount may vary depending on transfers and migrations.

    In the event that a Costa Rican is in that country and is affected, the Consulate made available an emergency telephone number that is answered by personnel regardless of the time or day.
