Expert warns of magnitude 9 earthquake in TurkeyChristian Fernsby ▼ | November 19, 2020
A Turkish expert said that the major earthquake expected in the Marmara region will likely take place in the northwestern province of Tekirdağ rather than Istanbul.
Ercan emphasized that Edirne and Kırklareli provinces, Tekirdağ’s western neighbors, are the safest places in terms of the earthquake, while the districts of Ergene, Şarköy and Marmara Ereğlisi are the most dangerous areas where construction should not be allowed.
Experts say all forecasts and fault line movements point to an inevitable earthquake of at least 7.0 magnitude. ■
