the death toll from the earthquake in Morocco has now exceeded 2,100, with over 15,000 people injured. Rescue operations are still ongoing, but the chances of finding survivors are diminishing.

The earthquake struck at around 2:30 AM local time on February 17, 2023, and was centered in the mountainous region of Chefchaouen. The quake was felt across much of Morocco and Algeria, and even as far away as Spain and Portugal.

The hardest hit areas are the towns of Imlil and Ait Ourir, which are located in the foothills of the Rif Mountains. These towns are popular tourist destinations, and many of the victims were foreign tourists.
