    ERCIS, Turkey (AP) - An Associated Press Television journalist says a 7-story building has collapsed two days after a powerful earthquake hit eastern Turkey.

    The building, with 46 apartments, collapsed on Tuesday in the city of Van. It was not known if anyone was inside but witnesses say voices can be heard.

    The 7.2-magnitude earthquake has been followed by hundreds of aftershocks and authorities have warned survivors not to enter damaged buildings.

    Thousands of people spent a second night outdoors in cars or tents in near-freezing conditions.
