The strong and shallow earthquake hit at 8.55 p.m. local time (5.55 UTC) just out of Sivrice in the eastern province of Elazig, about 550km (341 miles) east of the capital Ankara.

The major quake was followed by at least 30 aftershocks, the strongest measuring M5.4 and M5.1.

The quakes were felt in neighboring Syria, Iran and Lebanon.

There are 6 confirmed death (11 in Elazig province and 3 in Malatya province) and officials hope this number will not rise, as Sivrice was shaken very seriously and about five buildings collapsed in the town.

There are also dozens of injured victims, including some who were forced to leap from balconies to escape damaged buildings.

Turkey is seismically active

Turkey is a seismically active area located where the Arabian, Eurasian, and African tectonic plates meet and collide. Most of the country lies along the Anatolian Plate.

According to local seismologists, Istanbul is overdue for a big earthquake.

A M7.8 earthquake in 1939 near Erzincan left more than 32,000 people dead. More recently, in 1999, a powerful M7.4 magnitude earthquake hit Izmit in western Turkey, leaving more than 17,000 people dead including about 1,000 in Istanbul.

  2. As i mentioned HAARP is active in IRAN specially near BUSHEHR nuclear facilities. We have had many 5.5 ,5.2 and 5 in that area also i did predicted the easiest way out of world war 3 is to take down terrorist gov of IRAN with HAARP or floods and weather wars. We ask Donald J TRUMP please make IRAN great again and we need your help to freedom for IRAN. Regime change must be in top of list of president Trump no deals with this terrorist regime that killed 1700 protesters and killed by order terrorist khamanie to shoot down Ukrainian flight with 176 passengers that only sent 2 ambulances for such a major incidents and 20 of passengers were partially alive and asked for help our Intel reports shows when asked for more ambulances they have told leave place alone and IRGC came and killed the 20 passengers. This regime must go and death to khamanie and Rohani and all terrorist occupiers of land of Aryan Nation, including IRGC and all commanders, Hezbollah, and Qouds Army, Yemenis Huttis.
