A very shallow M5.6 earthquake hit 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) east of Kirkagac, Turkey, at a depth of about 8.6 kilometers (5.3 miles) on January 22, 2020, 7:22 p.m. (UTC).

This new tremblor occurred just as a member of Turkey’s Science Academy, said the southern delta of Kanal Istanbul will be violently impacted by the long-awaited Istanbul earthquake.

The 5.6-magnitude earthquake hit in Akhisar district of Manisa and was felt in Istanbul, Izmir, Eskisehir, Bursa and Aydin.

First videos show people running out of cafés in the street.

Then people just ‘chilled’ around, waiting for possible aftershocks.

The first shock lasted several seconds.

According to first official reports, there was no loss of life and injury.

But due to the intensity of the quake and its depth I am sure there will be damage, at least minor. Here the wall of that house collapsed for example:

This earthquake rattles Turkey on the same day, a professor from Turkey’s Science Academy stated that the southern delta of Kanal Istanbul will be violently impacted by the long-awaited Istanbul earthquake.

Istanbul earthquake will destroy Kanal Istanbul

The expected “Great Istanbul Earthquake” could seriously damage the southern delta of Kanal Istanbul, an artificial canal linking the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara.

Indeed, the area between the Sea of Marmara and Küçükçekmece is cribbled by many ‘active’ and shallow fault lines. These may even be somehow connected to the Çatalca fault lines and those running between the Çekmece lakes.

Moreover, the continental shelf is heavily fragmented in that area, which could exacerbate the effects of a potential seismic activity, causing devastation.

But I don’t think the government will listen to him and conduct profound geological and geophysical studies before starting with the construction of the canal. Another BOOM ahead. Find similar headlines on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle. [USGS, Duvare]

  1. We got told about shaking planet with sun eclipse and January full moon we also had in Iran
    5.6 close to nuclear facilities in Bushehr. We have seen shallow quake in Granada hills CA as well , 3.6 so far over 10K reported it. As i have told you HAARP is active and massive Sistan and Balouchestan massive rain caused 5000 villages and cities destroyed so far IRGC did not do anything. I warn people democratic of IRAN rise up or see your country will be destroyed by floods quakes and man made disasters. We know fact your missiles has no capabilities to do anything. We ask all Iranian army navy Air Force join people democratic of Iran. Do not shoot civilians although we have got info that Iraqi Shiite militia are entering Iran for holly sites visitors.
