Earth scientist Prof. Dr. Last minute earthquake statement from Okan Tüysüz: “It was equivalent to the explosion of 700 thousand tons of dynamite!” “It was among 110 counties at risk!”

Turkey woke up with an earthquake in Düzce Gölyaka at 04.08 in the morning. The earthquake, which occurred in Düzce Kaynaşlı on November 12, 1999, killed 845 of our citizens; It resulted in the injury of 4 thousand 948 citizens. The earthquake that reminded us of our pain, ITU geoscientist Prof. Dr. Okan Tüysüz commented. Here are the striking statements from Tüysüz…

“THE RISK WAS BETWEEN 110 DISTRICTS”

“The earthquake occurred in Gölyaka, one of our 110 districts with earthquake risk, which we mentioned last year. After the 17 August earthquake, the faults up to Gölyaka were broken. With the effect of 17 August, the 12 November earthquake occurred.

“THIS EARTHQUAKE WAS THE TRIGGER OF AUGUST 17”

The 12 November Düzce Kaynaşlı earthquake also started from Gölyaka and extended to Bolu. Today’s earthquake occurred at the northeastern end of the Karadere fault segment, which broke on August 17. Therefore, this earthquake occurred with the trigger of 17 August.

“It was Equivalent to the explosion of 700 thousand tons of dynamite”

Its size is given as 5.9-6, which is; Equivalent to 700 thousand tons of dynamite explosion. Therefore, it is quite natural to feel it in a wide area. It should be noted that it was an earthquake that did not cause much damage in Düzce, in fact, it could cause damage. The reason why it did not cause damage is that 80 percent of the city has undergone urban transformation.

“IF HE LIVED IN ISTANBUL, SERIOUS DAMAGES WOULD BE CAUSED”

If this 5.9 earthquake was in Istanbul; there would have been serious damage and loss of life. An earthquake with a magnitude of 5.6 occurred in Indonesia and nearly 200 lives were lost. This earthquake once again showed us how important it is to prepare buildings for earthquakes.

“ATTENTION TO THE TÜRKOĞLU-ÇELİKHAN LINE WITH THE SEVEN OF BINGOL”

Looking forward, Bingöl Yedisu is the most important area. An earthquake that may exceed 7 is expected there. We also see a risk between Türkoğlu and Çelikhan on the East Anatolian Fault, and there may be earthquakes that may exceed 7.

“THIS EARTHQUAKE DOES NOT AFFECT ISTANBUL”

It is necessary to be prepared for an earthquake; The most important thing here is the message that the earthquake gave us. If Düzce had been transformed into an urban area, we would have been talking about the loss of life. This earthquake will not affect the possible earthquake expected in Istanbul.”
