Some damage to buildings being cracked as well


A SURGING sea has been reported near Turkey’s resort city of Bodrum after a magnitude 6.7 earthquake rattled residents awake.
Towns near the epicentre of the shock, among the peninsulas and islands of Turkey’s western coast, are reporting broken water mains, gas leaks and downed electricity lines.
Residents of the Bodrum peninsula and surrounds have taken to social media, saying they found it hard to stand as the ground shook beneath them.

Slight shudders of the Earth's crust can be so devastating. Mankind is so fragile and susceptible to nature's whims, aren't we?

Fingers crossed it leads to nothing more and RIP to the victim(s). Greece amd the islands could do with soe help right now, not this shippp.

On a clearly more important note though:

I'm gonna go ahead and blame Russia.

Or USA...

Bases covered?

I think that is definitely an old file. The time is about 2-3 am in Greece right now.

This area can produce bigger quakes. Let's see what the aftershock sequence looks like.

Been watching the S-waves bounce around for the last couple of hours on TAs feed
