ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) — Six months ago today, a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit the Kahramanmaras and 10 other provinces in southern Turkey on the morning of February 6th.

The future, both for survivors and for cities under threat from a potential quake, is unclear as Turkey grapples with rampant inflation and recovery from the worst natural disaster in its modern history.
