what will happen under the earth
The epicenter of the earthquake was in Nurdagi, 26 km east of Gaziantep province of Turkey. The earthquake occurred at a depth of 18 km on the East Anatolian Fault in Nurdagi. This earthquake spread to two parts in the north and east. Because of this, there has been a lot of destruction in Turkey as well as in Syria. During the 20th century there was a great deal of seismic activity along the East Anatolian Fault. According to Roger Musson, research associate at the British Geological Survey, if we only look at earthquakes that are recorded on seismometers, then nothing will be found.
250 times more energy
According to the American Geological Survey, only three earthquakes have been recorded since 1970. But in 1822 there was an earthquake of magnitude seven and about 20,000 people were killed in it. In any year, less than 20 such earthquakes have been recorded whose intensity is seven. According to Joanna Faure Walker, Head of Risk and Disaster Management at the London Institute, 300 people died in the 2016 earthquake in Italy. That earthquake was of magnitude 6.2. The earthquake that occurred on the border of Turkey and Syria on Monday was about 250 times more powerful. From the year 2013 to 2022, only two dangerous earthquakes have occurred and the earthquake on February 6 was the most dangerous.
Doomsday threat on America too
Due to the Eastern Anatolian fault, the earthquake in Turkey and Syria was so dangerous. Solid rocks were pushing each other towards the fault line. These rocks created tension until one slipped. As soon as a rock slipped, it produced the same amount of energy as an earthquake. The San Andreas Fault in California is the most dangerous strike-slip fault in the world. Scientists have been warning for a long time that a big flood can come here at any time. According to geoscientist David Rothery of the Open University in Britain, tremors on the surface of the ground are much more dangerous than deep earthquakes.
