A magnitude 6.4 earthquake jolted the Turkey-Syria border, in the Hatay province, days after temblors had killed thousands in the region. The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre said that the tremor was at a depth of 2km (1.2 miles).

Only days ago, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake with its epicenter in Turkey’s Kahramanmaras province was followed by over 40 aftershocks. Thousands were buried under rubble in the country and its neighboring Syria.

After the earthquake on Monday, several social media users tweeted about a tsunami warning issued in Turkey.

“After the earthquake in Hatay, the Euro-Mediterranean Seismology Center issued a tsunami warning,” a Twitter handle named ConflictTR.

EMSC, which calls itself an Independent Scientific Organization and provider of real-time earthquake info, tweeted about a tsunami alert.

“TSUNAMI ALERT: Following the #earthquake (#deprem) M6.4 occurred 14 km SW of #Antioch (#Turkey) 20 min ago (local time 20:04:29). Move away from the coast and reach a higher place. Follow national authorities’ directives. Updates at the links provided below,” EMSC’s tweet read.

However, many social media users are reporting these tsunami warnings as fake.

“The 50 cm rise warning announced by AFAD is not a Tsunami. Tsunami is the name given to giant waves like the one below,” a Twitter user said.

“The EMSC has no data on the tsunami. They tweeted that they guessed the earthquake was at sea. However, according to Kandilli and AFAD data, the earthquake occurred on land. No tsunami risk,” another one added.

Rescue missions are still on in Turkey as concerns are growing over the possible spread of infection in the area
