Turkey and Syria Earthquake

56g5DH7.png
On 6 February 2023, an earthquake struck southern and central Turkey and western Syria.It occurred 34 km (21 mi) west of the city of Gaziantep at 04:17 TRT (01:17 UTC), causing widespread damage and thousands of fatalities in the region. With a maximum Mercalli intensity of X (Extreme) and a magnitude of at least Mww 7.8, the earthquake is tied with the 1939 Erzincan earthquake as the strongest recorded earthquake to hit Turkey in modern times and the deadliest earthquake to strike the country since the 1999 İzmit earthquake. It is also one of the strongest earthquakes ever recorded in the Levant. It has caused structural damage as far away as Ashdod, Israel and Nicosia, Cyprus.

The earthquake was followed by numerous aftershocks, including an unusually powerful Mww 7.5. More than 11,100 deaths have been reported in total; 8,570 were killed in Turkey and 2,540 in Syria.

Estimated losses
Deaths: At least 9,630 people
Non-fatal injuries: At least 42,654 people
People affected: At least 13M people
Buildings destroyed: At least 5,775

Let's pray for Turkey and Syria we alot of Utopia P2P enthusiast from Turkey here is their local channel https://utopia.im/E76200ED097E25E518E359FC40ED2732

Re: Turkey and Syria Earthquake

The things happening in Turkey and Syria are heartbreaking. They do require our prayers and financial assistance, particularly Turkey where there are more than 100 users in their local channel on the Utopia client, I check there today and they are not up to 50 users there due to the earthquake disaster.

Re: Turkey and Syria Earthquake

A massive earthquake hit Turkey as you heard and a reliable organization in Turkey (AHBAP) managed to open a crypto account. Donating with cryptos is banned in Turkey, they let it happen for just 1 week. If you are thinking about how to help from other countries.

Re: Turkey and Syria Earthquake

It is a heartwrenching event for the citizens of Turkey and Syria. In the meantime, 8574 people were said to have disappeared in Turkey, and over 2500 people were said to have disappeared in Syria. I hope they can reach the people trapped beneath the rubble as quickly as possible.

The number of people that died through the earthquake has increased to at least 40,000 but I read that the soldier is hearing some people's voices under the rubble and I hope the needed to get arrive before they suffocate.

Thanks to outside help, there were fewer victims than there could have been.

It is indeed a terrible natural disaster cause it was said to be the worst earthquake to be recorded in Turkey and the sad aspect is the people that lost their life. I watch a video of a man that protects his kids by using his body and i know he's happy on the other side that his sons make it out alive.

I pray that issue like this won't happen to the people in Turkey and Syria. Out of curiosity, what do you guys think will happen to the crypto investors that there which escape the accident?

Yes, it's something that's hard to get over it and I can see that some cryptocurrency-related are sending funds in crypto and providing the earthquake victim some relief funds. I hope thing like this will never happen again in the countries.

Unfortunately it is a natural phenomenon and will happen again and again.

Yes, it's something that occurs naturally but there should be a solution to it and how to protect people's life and property. Meanwhile, it has been a while since this type of natural disaster happened to Turkey.
