Penetru Posted February 6 Share Posted February 6 Se tot cutremură Turcia şi nu se mai opreşte... In 1999, a tremor of similar magnitude to today’s quakes in Turkey devastated Izmit killing more than 17,000. Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has described Monday as the worst disaster for the country since 1939, when an earthquake killed over 32,000 people and injured more than 100,000. The first quake struck as people slept, and measured magnitude 7.8, one of the most powerful quakes in the region in at least a century. It was felt as far away as Cyprus and Cairo. The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) said preliminary data showed the second large quake measured 7.7 magnitude, and was 67km (42 miles) north-east of Kahramanmaraş, Turkey, at a depth of 2km. There have been more than a 100 smaller aftershocks registered by seismologists. Official figures from Turkey say 2,818 buildings had collapsed. Unul de 7,8 noaptea şi unul de 7,5 la prânz, ambele urmate de replici de 6 Richter. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
