Video show the terifying 7.0 magnitude earthquake in turkey.
At least 92 dead, hundreds injured as major quake hits Turkey and Greece.
The magnitude-6.6 quake earthquake at 14:51 local time (11:51 GMT) on Friday struck off Turkey's Aegean coast, north of the Greek island of Samos, according to AFAD. The epicenter was measured at 17 km off the coast of Seferihisar district in the western province of Izmir with a depth of 16.54 km.
USGS said the quake struck was magnitude-7.0 at a depth of 21 km and was felt as far away as Athens and Istanbul, triggering a mini-tsunami.
A sea surge has flooded streets near Izmir, a Turkish city with a population of around three million people, where buildings were reduced to rubble.
Classes in Izmir will be halted for one week due to the earthquake.
Images from Izmir have shown dazed people trying to make their way through rubble piled high on the streets.
"Oh my God!" one passer-by shouted near a collapsed building in one image that went viral in Turkey, reported AFP.
In another, a crowd let out a relieved cheer and broke out in applause as one woman was pulled out alive in tears.
Izmir's Mayor Tunc Soyer told local media that 20 buildings had collapsed.
On the Greek island of Samos, near the quake's epicentre, people rushed out into the streets in panic.
"The walls of some houses have crumbled and several buildings are damaged," the island's Deputy Mayor Michalis Mitsios told local media.
"It was chaos," added fellow Deputy Mayor Giorgos Dionysiou. "We have never experienced anything like this."
Footage showed rescuers being helped by residents and police using chainsaws as they tried to force their way through the rubble of a seven-floor building that had collapsed, AFP reported.
Rescuers called for silence to listen for any signs of survivors, before clearing boulders and other debris in a human chain.
