Children and the Earthquake in Turkey
Photographs from the earthquake area

Tents and shacks. As winter set in, the residents of Adapazari started to build wooden shacks like the one on the right to replace their tents. Often the wood was salvaged from damaged buildings. You can see an apartment block in the background that has sunk into the ground like a ship into the water. 13th November 1999
