(CNN) --

Collapsed buildings, emergency vehicles and tents can be seen in new satellite images of earthquake-hit cities in Turkey revealing the damage caused by Monday's devastating quake.

The images, captured by Maxar Technologies, show the towns of Islahiye and Nurdagi.

  • The reasons why the earthquake in Turkey was so strong

In Islahiye, dozens of buildings across the city have collapsed.

In the city center, a group of residential buildings just west of the Hacı Ali Öztürk Mosque appear destroyed.

At least thirteen buildings in about two city blocks—all between three and five stories tall—were destroyed.


Just to the east of the mosque complex, two large destroyed buildings are visible.

Rubble from those two buildings, four and six stories high, litters the street.

One of the roofs appears to remain intact, despite the building below having collapsed.

Further down the street, bulldozers appear to clear another collapsed building.

Just north of Islahiye, images from the town of Nurdagi show dozens of trailer trucks on the road.

The city's “Great Garden”, normally a green space with benches and shops, is now filled with tents, probably to house survivors and emergency teams.

At least two large high-rise buildings, located just south of the park, have collapsed.

Three more on the north side of the park also collapsed.

To the east of the park, several buildings are also in ruins.

Some buildings appear to still be standing, but have a significant amount of rubble around them.

At least three buildings - all residential - collapsed in the area around the stadium in the Nurdagi district.

A significant number of vehicles are seen in the area.

Similar to other parts of Nurdagi, some of the buildings still standing have a significant amount of rubble around them.

In the western section of Nurdagi, near a government building, dozens of tents have been erected.

A large tent, surrounded by vehicles, is seen just outside another building whose roof has collapsed.
