The United States reacted quickly to provide, much needed, arctic tents and heaters to Turkey from stockpiles prepositioned in Norway. In the wake of the 7.2 magnitude quake that toppled buildings and killed several hundred in eastern Turkey, one of the most needed items were heavy-duty cold-weather tents to shelter thousands of displaced people and shelter them from the winter cold. The United States responded with enough arctic tents and heaters to house about 3500 Turks.
