A tsunami has been reported on the Turkish coast following a strong earthquake, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre says.
The 6.7-magnitude quake hit 12km (seven miles) south of the Turkish city of Bodrum, in the Aegean Sea, with a depth of 10km, the agency said.
There have been no immediate reports of casualties or damage. People were warned to avoid beaches in the area.
Pictures on social media showed people walking with water lapping their ankles.
Eyewitnesses posted videos of staff and patients at Bodrum State Hospital cowering for cover, while tourists were forced to flee their rooms and gather anxiously in the street.
The earthquake caused cracks in one hotel on the party island of Kos, with tourists facing a night sleeping on the beach after they were evacuated from the building.
It’s a developing story and we will report to you soon with new updates!
