The earthquake struck the town of Defne in southern Turkey’s Hatay province, close to the border with Syria, Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Agency (AFAD) said on Monday.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) also reported a magnitude 6.4 earthquake at a depth of 10 kilometers.

On Monday, AFAD warned people to stay away from the coastline as a precaution as the country’s vice president urged residents to stay away from damaged buildings.

A powerful aftershock followed a deadly magnitude 7.8 earthquake on February 6 that killed more than 46,000 people in Turkey and Syria.

CNN teams in Adana, Turkey felt the quake, as did eyewitnesses in Gaziantep and Mersin.
