#9. Turkey

Turkey falls within the seismic zone between Arabian, Eurasian and African plates. It’s very geographic location implies that an earthquake can hit the country at any point of time. Turkey has had a long history of large earthquakes that often occur in progressive adjacent earthquakes. The magnitude 7.6 earthquake that struck western Turkey on August 17, 1999 occurred on one of the world’s longest and best studied strike-slip (horizontal motion) faults: the east-west trending North Anatolian fault. The event lasted for just 37 seconds, and killed around 17,000 people. Over 50,000 people were injured and over 5,00,000 people were rendered homeless, making it one of the most devastating earthquakes of the 20th century.
