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.
