Tragedy Strikes Morocco: Over 600 people Dead in Devastating 6.8-Magnitude Earthquake


Morocco was jolted by a rare and immensely powerful earthquake late Friday night, leaving more than 600 people dead and a trail of destruction that stretched from remote villages nestled in the Atlas Mountains to the historic and vibrant city of Marrakech.

The earthquake, registering a powerful 6.8 on the Richter scale, is the strongest ever recorded in this mountainous region. Unfortunately, the number of people who have been hurt or lost their lives is expected to increase as rescue operations continue.

The Moroccan government has declared a state of emergency, allowing for the allocation of additional resources to support the rescue and recovery efforts
