Meanwhile, experts have made a big claim.

Experts say that Monday's powerful earthquake in Turkey shifted tectonic plates up to 10 feet (5-6 meters).

Italy's seismologist Dr. Carlo Doglioni told that due to this change in tectonic plates, Turkey may have sunk 5 to 6 meters (about 10 feet) more than Syria.

3 tectonic plates The Anatolian tectonic plate is situated between the Eurasian and Arabian plates.

According to experts, the Anatolian tectonic plate and the Arabian plate have moved 225 kilometers away from each other.

Which seismologists call 'shallow transcurrent'.

"In other words, Turkey has actually slipped five to six meters compared to Syria in the estimates," he said.

The president of Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) said that all this is based on preliminary data. 

Talking about the changes in the earthquake affected area, Professor Doglioni said, “The massive erosion covered an area 190 kilometers long and 25 wide. reached the most intense peaks." 

In an interview given to an Italian newspaper, Professor Doglioni also told about the magnitude of the earthquake in Turkey.

He said, 'The two flaps moved relative to each other.

Simply put, Turkey moved southwest relative to the Arabian Plate.

We are talking about a highly seismic zone, one of the most dangerous in the Mediterranean region.

Very dangerous earthquakes have happened here in the last centuries.

According to the report of AFP, since Monday till now, the earth has trembled more than 500 times in Turkey.
