A magnitude 6.1 earthquake has struck an area of western Turkey near the town of Duzce, about 210km (130 miles) east of Turkey’s largest city Istanbul.

The tremors were strong enough to be felt in Istanbul and the capital Ankara. At least 50 people were injured, officials say. Estimates of the quake’s depth vary from 2km to 10km.

This is the fifth massive quake within the last 48 hours. A big one is about to happen. Be ready!

There are reports of power being disrupted in the region, as well as some residents jumping from balconies.

Another 4.7 quake was reported some 20 minutes after the first.

Prepare now! Protect your home and cars againts EMP, solar flare and lightnings

Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said there had been no information about loss of life.

But later Turkey’s disaster agency said 40+ had been injured in Duzce, one in Istanbul, six in Zonguldak and one in Sakarya on the Black Sea coast, and one in Bolu, to the southeast.

Photos from Duzce at night show many people huddled outdoors, wrapped in blankets and using makeshift fires to keep warm.

Security camera footage of the earthquake has been posted on social media.

The quake shook many tiles and panels off Duzce’s courthouse – a photo shows the debris at the bottom of the building.

Prepare now! You will never go without electricity with this portable power station!

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the threat of major earthquakes is ever-increasing.

10 days ago, Turkey held its first nationwide earthquake drill. Officials conducted the exercise on the 23rd anniversary of a devastating quake that killed 710 people in northwestern Turkey.

Duzce was hit by a major 7.2 magnitude earthquake in 1999 which left at least 845 people dead.

It followed an even larger quake months earlier in the city of Izmit, 100km to the west, which killed more than 17,000 and left buildings in the region in a weakened state.

Prepare now! Stock up on Iodine tablets for the next nuclear disaster

Some 80% of Duzce’s buildings have been rebuilt since the 1999 earthquakes, the city’s mayor told local media.

  1. Increased earth quakes in Southern California is now more worry than Psi-don missiles of Russia .
    If you are away from 9 meals then save money to buy food water and gas masks. Because it was that SOB quake director of Pasadena Nancy said in 2001 that soon 7.5 quake will hit ridge-crest again. Now over due is indeed. Prepare or not do not ask FEMA any help… You will stand alone?

  2. And get at least 100 miles from any coast. 100 miles from any volcano that’s been active in last 10,000 years. And at least 675 feet in elevation. Avoid rivers and large lakes.

  3. Sandi ego and Southern western of California was shaken up as we all know the series of quakes started months before in central Mexico now is coming up to the California and who ever says it does not matter shame on you as well. Prepared for time of no return!… we can tell if we are wrong or not?
    food for 3 months and water for 30 days and either way those who are prepared verses drinking beers
    buy food and save money..
