Russian expert: Seismic activity in Türkiye and Syria will continue for several more weeks


The Deputy Director of the Institute of Geophysics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Ruben Tatevosyan, announced that seismic activity in the North Anatolian Fault will continue for several weeks.

Tatevosyan pointed out that this activity led to two strong earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria, but the possibility of strong earthquakes like the one that occurred is still low.

“The strength of the main earthquake was very big, therefore, we should expect many tremors to occur later, as the seismic activity will continue for several weeks”.

Tatevosyan continued, “For example, a magnitude 7.5 earthquake occurred, and this is a very strong earthquake… Therefore, I expect the earthquakes to continue for several weeks, but they will weaken with the passage of time”.

Tatevosyan added, “The possibility of earthquakes with the same strength as the tremors that occurred is small”.

Because the North Anatolian Fault practically released the energy trapped in it, causing the strongest manifestation of seismic activity.

Tatevosyan says: “These aren’t the strongest earthquakes that occurred in Eurasia and other continents, because there are stronger earthquakes.

But if we talk about the northern Anatolia region, we can say that its power was maximum or close to that”.
