A powerful earthquake struck the Aegean Sea on Friday, killing at least 79 people in Turkey and two people on the Greek island of Samos. Hundreds were injured.

The Turkish city of Izmir was hit particularly hard by the quake. Rescuers are still searching for any survivors who might be stuck under the rubble of buildings that collapsed.

The United States Geological Survey measured the earthquake's magnitude at 7.0, while Turkish authorities said it was 6.6. The quake struck 14 kilometers (8.7 miles) northeast of the town of Néon Karlovásion on Samos, the USGS reported.
