الزلازل الكبيرة الأخيرة في تركيا

By Jordi Bou

February 6, 2023 - The magnitude 7.8 earthquake which killed more than 2,300 people in Turkey and northwest Syria, was one of the worst to strike Turkey in recent years. It was followed by another large quake of magnitude 7.7.

The quake, which hit in the early darkness of a winter morning, was also felt in Cyprus and Lebanon.

It was Turkey's most severe quake since 1999, when one of similar magnitude devastated Izmit and the heavily populated eastern Marmara Sea region near Istanbul, killing more than 17,000.
