Two earthquakes shake eastern Turkey

Two earthquakes of 4.5- and 4.2-magnitude jolted Turkey's eastern province of Elazig early Saturday, according to the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD).

The earthquakes stuck 31 minutes apart at 2.32 a.m. local time [0532GMT] and 3.03 a.m. [0603GMT] at a depth of about seven kilometers (4.3 miles), with its epicenter in the district of Sivrice.

"Currently, there has been no damage and no loss," said AFAD.

A 6.8-magnitude earthquake shook Elazig earlier this month, killing 41 people, according to AFAD. Tremors were felt in neighboring Syria and Georgia.
