Earthquakes in Turkey | All About Turkey
North-western Turkey, the county's most densely populated region and industrial heartland, has been struck by two massive earthquakes in less than three months in 1999. The first, on 17 August 1999 at 03:02 local, measured 7.4 on the Richter scale and lasted 45 seconds. Izmit, an industrial city of than-1,2 million in western Turkey, was nearest the epicenter.
