An earthquake is a natural disaster and it is impossible to predict its exact location. So if he’s right, people are surprised. In addition to damage to infrastructure, such as roads and bridges, there is also loss of life and damage to property. The result is a traffic collapse due to the lack of multiple travel options.
The earthquake in the Aegean Sea killed 25 people in Turkey and 2 in Greece. In Greece, two teenagers, a boy and a girl, were killed. They died on the Greek island of Samos when the wall above them collapsed. In June, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.4 killed at least six people in Mexico.
According to CNN, at least 20 buildings in the Turkish city of Izmir have collapsed. Mayor Tunka Sawyer talked to some media about it. The cars were crushed beneath the buildings, and in the rubble there was a constant search for survivors.
The Turkish emergency service reported that approximately 800 people were injured, while rescue teams and helicopters intensified their search for the injured. Murat Kurum, the Turkish Minister of Environment and Urbanisation, mentions many rules. Some of them were over 4.0 in size.
Floods have occurred in the Turkish province of Izmir and on the Greek island of Samos. Officials have called the phenomenon a mini-tsunami, but no tsunami warnings have been received.
The earthquake inwas followed by numerous aftershocks.
According to the USGS, the shock had a force of 7.0. However, the Turkish authorities do have the possibility to 6.6. The Committee agrees that the Commission should be given the opportunity to The hit Samos 8.7 miles northeast of Neon-Carlovia at approximately 13.51 hours Greek time. The earthquake was 13 miles deep and the effects were felt on the ground around the epicentre.
CNN adds that both Turkey and Greece reported several aftershocks and advised people to take the necessary precautions. The governor of Izmir called on the inhabitants to clean the streets and not to use mobile phones. He’ll help with the rescue operations. In Greece, many old buildings on the island of Samos have collapsed.
Once again, the government demanded that people keep a safe distance from the coastline and the buildings. In December 2018, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0 on the Richter Alaskan scale shocked Alaska and damaged its infrastructure.
The Heads of State and Government of Turkey and Greece discuss earthquake.
Tensions remain between Turkey and Greece over energy needs in the Eastern Mediterranean. Yet the Greek Prime Minister Kiriakos Mitsotakis spoke with his Turkish counterpart on Twitter.
According to CNN, he expressed his sympathy for the loss of life in this tragedy and said: Whatever our differences, it is time for our peoples to unite. The Turkish president then said: Turkey is also always ready to help Greece heal its wounds. France has offered to send aid to Turkey and Greece and the President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, has confirmed the EU’s willingness to help.
The earthquake caused the mini-tsunami.
According to De, there was a strong earthquake off the Turkish coast of the Aegean Sea and north of the Greek island of Samos.
It caused the mini-tsunami that engulfed Izmir and Samos. The authorities in Izmir have set up a reception centre that can accommodate around 2 000 people at night, as other buildings could collapse. Both Turkey and Greece are on the fault line and have survived earthquakes in the past. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the government would help the victims of the earthquake by all means available to our state. This is the greatest progress on the island of Samoa since 1904. The population of the island is about 45,000 people.
