Earthquake in Turkey

Just a side thought. A couple days ago, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake hit eastern Turkey. Thousands of buildings collapsed, and many more people were buried inside the debris. I was watching the morning news as they reported that more than 1,500 people were dead or injured. It is a total catastrophe.
Turkey has been diplomatically and militarily closely tied with South Korea for a long time. Koreans are taking this situation seriously. I really hope that Korean government will send some sort of aid group over to Turkey ASAP, and the aftermath will settle down soon.
