Again

Today, an earthquake happened here with a magnitude of 6.9 or 7, according to sources about 4 hours ago. It took about 45 seconds. We shaked quite a bit. The aftershocks of the earthquake continue.

The exact location of the earthquake, the Aegean Sea close to Turkey and the Greek islands. So it shook on both sides. Some buildings were destroyed in Izmir, there are still people under the wracked buildings.

I’m little bit angry some ignorant people and order.

By the way, WD did not warn again, I am sure that dogs have no talent for this anymore.

Speaking in the main news release, Earthquake Scientist Prof. Dr. Ahmet Ercan:
“If the economy is more bad in a country, the more deadly the earthquake is. In order to solve an earthquake problem in a country, the economy of that country needs to improve, that is, if there is more poverty, the earthquake is the closer to you. The poor die, the rich do not die in the earthquake. You’ve never heard of any celebrity, the rich being freed from the wreckage, you shall not. The main problem is PO-VER-TY.”

  1. Good point about poor economy and earthquake damage. It’s hard to enforce quake proof building standards (as they do here and in New Zealand) in countries that can barely provide for their citizens.
