      A man reacts, after rescue teams found his father dead under a collapsed building, in Kahramanmaras, southern Turkey, Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2023. Nearly two days after the magnitude 7.8 quake struck southeastern Turkey and northern Syria, thinly stretched rescue teams work to pull more people from the rubble of thousands of buildings. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla) Turkish army commandos and medics rescue a woman from a collapsed building in Hatay, southern Turkey, Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2023. Freezing cold temperatures are hindering rescue teams as they work to save people still trapped in the rubble after a 7.8-magnitude earthquake ripped through the region in the early morning hours Monday. Officials expect the number of reported deaths to increase significantly as operations continue. (Cemal Yurttas/DIA via AP) [ABSTRACT FROM PUBLISHER]
