Turkey is fundamentally vulnerable to earthquakes because of its geographical location.

The country sits between two huge tectonic plates, Eurasia and Africa/Arabia, which are inexorably grinding into one another, north to south.

The Anatolian plate, on which most of the Turkish landmass lies, is being squeezed westwards towards the Aegean Sea.

Periodic movements happen along two main faults, the North Anatolian fault and the East Anatolian fault
