Turkey moved 3 meters to the south-west as a result of the earthquake

The earthquake that began last night and continues to scourge south-eastern Turkey, with several aftershocks, would have been triggered by the cracking of the fault that divides the Arabian and Anatolian plates. 

In terms of energy released, the geological event is equivalent to 32 atomic bombs of Hiroshima, and a thousand times greater than the Amatrice earthquake of 2016. In fact, in a few seconds, Anatolia made a three-metre jump to the south-west, with a sliding movement to the side of the Arabic plate.

¬†To give a dimension, just think that the average movement of the plates in the area is normally "equal to 10 millimeters per year": he explains to¬†Repubblica the Turkish researcher of Ingv Aybige Akinci¬†.¬†She who adds: ¬ęThe fracture was enormous: a good 150 km in length.¬†The quake involved an area of hundreds of square kilometers¬Ľ.

The eastern Anatolian fault is responsible for the earthquake in Turkey. The South-East Anatolian fault "has probably come to deform the coast", according to Alessandro Amato, seismologist and director of the Ingv Tsunami Center. Mario Tozzi in La Stampatoday he explains that the two plates are in constant motion and rub together along the fault. “When enough energy builds up, the two sides snap sideways relative to each other. Causing a shift. In this case estimated about three meters horizontally. At the same time, the seismic waves are released in depth and unfold the most serious effects on the surface".

When things like this happen, I realize that we are literally NOTHING. More than 2000 people died in a span of few seconds. It's unthinkable

13.5 Million people are affected by those earthquakes. There was 9 hours between 7.7 and 7.6 magnitude earthquakes in the same area. A lot of my friends are homeless at the moment and we have thousands of deaths.

Goddamn...I'm so sorry for you and your friends. I hope the world pulling together to send aide does enough to help the survivors.

OT: Earthquakes are some of the most extreme acts of nature there are on our planet. It's devastating just how much damage they can inflict in such a short period of time.

Also so many people survived the earthquake but died because of the cold. It's expected to reach almost -10‚ĄÉ at nights in the earthquake zone.¬†

It's been talked about heavily, all nearby countries are involved in rescuing people even the ones Turkey has conflicts with and there are live updates on news sites.

I think some sources just neglect to mention that Syria has been heavily affected by the earthquake as well

the  images i've seen are devastating

coming from a country where earthquakes are very common i can feel their pain but at the same time i can't, because this was once in a lifetime event.

I hope we can get efficiently organized to send as much help as we can

I have lots of colleague whose families are there.. And they can't receive any news from them. That's terrible. All they know is that everything is destroyed.

It's front page and first story news in California this morning. The Los Angeles Fire Dept. is sending 81 firefighters, 6 sniffer dogs, and 3 mechanical engineers on the next flights to Turkey. Godspeed...

The fact that so countries are sending aid is amazing, however the sad part is that like less than 10% goes to Syria... In Syria the civil war is still ongoing and it's a mess with various factions that don't get along. The Russian-alligned and UN recognized Syrian government wants the aid to be sent to them. And then (geo)politics happen:

Thank god. We here in California know that what happened in Turkey could very well be us soon. I don't pray, but all my good thoughts are reserved for Turkey and Syria.

Ill never forget the 6.8 Northridge Quake. I was 8 years old and the trauma was real. Hit in the middle of the night...  Power out for a week, bitter January cold, nothing to keep the rain or wind out. It was bad. Supposedly every 20 years LA area gets one... we are long overdue...

The longest power outage I remember for me was 3 days and that was enough to cause major havok

 

And it was during the summer. Surviving without AC for 3 days is perfectly duable
