Major earthquake (6.8) in Eastern Turkey at Sivrice, some distance east of Ankara, 20 fatalities and counting.

If I read this correctly https://www.researchgate.net/publication/298907726_Lake_Hazar_Basin_A_Negative_Flower_Structure_on_the_East_Anatolian_Fault_System_EAFS_SE_Turkey


the area is part of a complex fault zone mainly associated with the East Anatolian fault and Lake Hazar just to the east of Sivrice has been created by a spreading of the earth's crust. Last significant earthquake in the area was in 2007.

Surprising for this magnitude, even though it was a sideslip on the fault

Just wondering what part of the island has this affected - quite a nasty jolt and capable of causing quite a bit of damage and maybe some deaths as well ?

Can't see where else to slip this in, but it is interesting in a seismic kind of way...

There has just been a magnitude 5.6 (IMO reported magnitude) quake in SW Iceland (about 25km S of Reykjavik). It is in an area that has been quite active this year and has several interlinked volcanic systems. At present I don’t know if it is tectonic or magmatic.


USGS have revised it to magnitude 5.5.


No current sign of any eruption.

Could be bad




A powerful earthquake has struck off Turkey's Aegean coast, north of the Greek island of Samos, officials said.






The 7.0 magnitude tremor, about 17km (11 miles) off the coast of western Izmir province, was felt as far away as Athens and Istanbul, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.






There was no word on casualties but images from the Turkish city of Izmir showed buildings that had collapsed.

My brother is in Turkey and posted on our Whatsapp group that he’d just had an Earthquake and they’re still getting after shocks.

I stayed in a great hotel near Ozdere 9 years ago, which is south of Izmir and overlooking the bay where the epicentre was. I suspect it could have serious damage.


It's also very close to Ephesus, hope that's not badly affected.

Sky say ‘Mini’ Tsunami.

I hate that term. They didn’t look mini to me Sky need to understand the energy that’s needed to generate this and the mechanics involved

A 'quake could be a serious matter for them and there are low lying settlements near low beaches that would be vulnerable to a tsunami-like sea surge.
