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

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-51245088

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.

Istanbul is the one everyone is fearing. Been a long time since a major quake

On a different fault line, the North Anatolian Fault (NAF) - on which the successive quakes have been moving steadily westwards, and, as you say, Istanbul is the next stop. Just hope the present quake doesn't tickle up the NAF.

No reports of damage yet https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-51287493

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

Any links to that Gavin?

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...

Fairly big earthquake (7.4) has occurred in southern Mexico apparently but details are scant.

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

Quote:

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 few years ago we had a Natural History week on the island of Samos, which has also been affected by this earthquake. Their vital tourist economy will already have been upskittled by Covid-19 and they are a frequent landing place for migrants too. 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.

Some details here:
