Kandilli Observatory gave the magnitude of the second big earthquake as 7.5. Since the quake happened as several reporters were in the region, it was recorded on live cameras by many media outlets.
It came in the aftermath of another 7.7-magnitude earthquake in the early morning hours in the province.
