Satellite images reveal before and after earthquake in Turkey

(CNN) — Collapsed buildings, emergency vehicles and tents can be seen in new satellite images of quake-hit cities in Turkey, revealing the damage caused by Monday’s devastating quake.

Photos taken by Maxar Technologies show the cities of Islahiye and Noordagi.

In Islahiye, dozens of buildings have collapsed across the city. In the center of the city, just west of Haci Ali Öttürk Mosque, a group of residential buildings have been destroyed.

At least thirteen buildings—all between three and five stories tall—over about two city blocks were destroyed.

Two large ruined buildings are visible just east of the mosque complex.

The debris of those two buildings, four and six storeys high, is scattered on the road. One of the roofs is intact even though the building below has collapsed.

Further down the street, bulldozers appear to be removing another collapsed building.

Photos from the town of Noordagi, just north of Islahiye, show dozens of trailer trucks on the road.

The city’s “Great Garden”, normally a green space with benches and shops, is now filled with tents, probably for survivors and emergency teams.

At least two large high-rise buildings located just south of the park have collapsed. Three more also collapsed on the north side of the park.

To the east of the park, several buildings are also in ruins.

Some buildings appear to be still standing, but there is a lot of debris around them.

At least three buildings – all residential – collapsed in the area around the stadium in the Noordagi district.

A large number of vehicles are seen in the area. As in other parts of Noordgi, some buildings are still standing, with a considerable amount of debris surrounding them.

Dozens of tents have been pitched near a government building in the western part of Noordagi.

A large tent surrounded by vehicles is visible just outside another building whose roof has collapsed.
