ISKENDERUN, Turkey—Rescue teams were in a race against time Wednesday to find survivors from the twin earthquakes that have killed more than 11,000 people in Turkey and Syria, as freezing temperatures continued to complicate humanitarian efforts and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited the affected areas. 

“We are face to face with a great disaster,” said Mr. Erdogan from Kahramanmaras, the center of the quake’s destruction. He said initial problems with rescue operations were beginning to ease but challenges with transporting oil remained.
