The first earthquake’s epicentre was at Gaziantep, which is located roughly 90 kilometres from the Syrian border. Millions of Syrian refugees have taken up residence in this area. As far away as Cairo, the earthquake was felt. Aftershocks have persisted in wreaking havoc and causing destruction. Since the initial earthquake, over 30 earthquakes with magnitudes greater than 4 have been registered in Turkey, according to data from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). As part of the fault’s “readjustment process” following the main slide, aftershocks occur close to the fault zone where the mainshock ruptured.
