A powerful earthquake has hit eastern Turkey near the city of Van, less than 100 kilometers from the border with Iran.

The U.S. Geological Service said the earthquake measured 7.3 on the Richter scale and was centered some 19 kilometers northeast of Van.

Preliminary reports out of Turkey said some buildings in downtown Van collapsed.

Residents of the Armenian capital Yerevan also felt the tremor and many residents of the city fled their houses.

Officials in Armenia said the earthquake there measured somewhere between 5 and 6 points but was more strongly felt in areas along the border with Turkey.
