Nurdagi: The situation there is not normal due to the devastation caused by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. More than 7,700 people have lost their lives in this devastating earthquake while many buildings have collapsed. Earthquakes that hit one after another claimed many lives. Everywhere there are innocent faces searching for their loved ones among the screams and rubble. Experts, on the other hand, provide important information. He said the quake was so strong that Turkey slipped 10 feet off her.
Dr. Carlo Doglioni, an Italian seismologist, provides detailed information on this. He said Turkey’s tectonic plates can move five to six meters compared to Syria’s. He further explained that Turkey is actually located on several major fault lines. It is connected with the Anatolian plate, the Arabian plate, and the Eurasian plate. This is why earthquakes are most dangerous. Meteorologists there say a 225-kilometer fault line between the Anatolian and Arabian plates has broken.
On the other hand, Dr. Bob Holdworth, a professor of structural geology at Durham University, said a tectonic plate shift was logical given the severity of the earthquake. In fact, there is a direct correlation between the strength of earthquakes and the movement of tectonic plates. However, there is nothing that seems difficult.
