Turkish natives in Tampa react to earthquake
Florida has a large Turkish population. There is even a consultant in Miami. ABC Action News spent the day talking to many people right here in the Tampa Bay area who have friends and family impacted by the earthquake. One woman told us her family had just seconds to get out. “The building collapsed. She grabbed the kids and husband. They are basically in their pajamas in the middle of the night. They could not get anything, no wallet, no money, no water, no ID, just the car keys. I think her husband just grabbed the car keys and they rushed out of the building,” explained Ozlem Ayyer.
