Twin quakes rock western Turkey and there are no injuries at this time. The quakes were also felt in Greece.
A second strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.9 shook a port city in western Turkey on Monday, only hours after a magnitude 5.7 quake
sent terrified residents running from their homes.
The first quake struck at 8:45 a.m. local time and was centred in the Aegean Sea off the coast of Izmir, the Istanbul-based Kandilli Observatory said.
It caused minor damage but no injuries.

There are earthquakes in turkey because of what's going on in africa. The african continent is rifting apart, thats what the mountains and great
lakes are all about. This rifting is also what lead to the ripping off of arabia from africa and the formation of the Red sea. This system extends
thru israel, all the way up into turkey.
