At the end of last month in Istanbul have been several strong aftershocks. Their magnitude was largest for the last 20 years. Scientists from the German center for the study of the Earth told what that means for a city with a population of about 15 million people, according to the portal PLANETANOVOSTI.COM.

the Earthquake happened on 24 and 26 September, 70 km from Istanbul. Their strength was 4.7 and 5.7 points respectively. Interestingly, the tremors were felt even in Istanbul. Injured 34 people.

according to scientists, earthquakes are not something special: a metropolis built on the North Anatolian fault, which stretches for a thousand kilometers. This is the point of intersection of the Anatolian plate and the Eurasian.

the Rift claimed the lives of 20 thousand people in the early XX century. There is now a voltage higher than it was in the last century, experts say. In 1999 because of the earthquake in Istanbul killed 17 thousand people.

German researchers found that instead of the differences mentioned plate face. It is fraught with seismic activity of magnitude 7 points. Unfortunately, to predict the fate of Istanbul, the experts can not, however, know that people have hard times.
