Wish everyone out there all the best. Hope you are alright. It is all over the news here. They are saying on the news there has been a curfew and the secular rule has been eroded lately . The military are confirming they have taken over. Tanks are at Ataturk airport.

Celebrations are slowly starting but also people hoarding.
I saw people leaving with 8 loaves of bread.
At least 15 people queuing for Denizbank ATM trying to pull out money, sacred that accounts get closed off.
