This event brought to the Turks the memory of the terrible earthquake of 1939. 30,000 servicemen died. Although there have been seven earthquakes in Turkey in the last 25 years. But this earthquake is hellish, say the locals. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan tweeted: “The earthquake has caused great damage to the country. I sympathize with the countrymen.
