IMM President Ekrem İmamoğlu, moved to AKOM after the 5.8 magnitude earthquake centered in Silivri. Expressing his wishes to the residents of Istanbul and the citizens living in the surrounding provinces, İmamoğlu stated that the earthquake was a warning. Emphasizing that the earthquake is a national issue that needs to be mobilized, İmamoğlu said, “We have identified over 800 new earthquake assembly areas in Istanbul in the last 1 month. There are those who are ready, there are those who are not. We will do the preparatory work for them. Most of them are in the central districts of Istanbul. These determinations in the central points of Istanbul, the smallest of which is 500 square meters, will actually fill a great deficiency”. Noting that the images circulating about the Bosphorus Bridge on social media do not reflect the truth, İmamoğlu said, "Let's pass it on because there is a lot of information about the Bosphorus Bridge. Interviewed with highway officials. There was a pier. The image of that pier makes it look like there's a problem there. No problem. The scaffold is also removed. If there is a problem, we will inform our citizens here," he said.

Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) President Ekrem İmamoğluAfter the 5.8 magnitude earthquake centered in Silivri, which created fear in Istanbul and the surrounding provinces, it took its breath away at the Disaster Coordination Center (AKOM). Sharing the first information he received with members of the press, İmamoğlu made two different statements. In his first statement, İmamoğlu said:

ÜK THANK YOU WE CAN NOT LOST ”

“We had a 13.59 magnitude earthquake in Silivri off the Marmara Sea at exactly 5.8 hours. I extend my wishes to all my citizens of Istanbul. We are in IMM Disaster Coordination Center (AKOM). Thank God we have no casualties. There is no serious injury report reaching us. We have received some notices about the buildings. In Avcılar and Sarıyer, apart from the overthrowings in the upper parts of the 2 minarets, the reports of building demolitions were unfounded. These are the news that makes us happy. The earthquake is a reality of Istanbul and nature. We all know that the earthquake alone does not kill people, it kills negligence. Problems in buildings that are not prepared for earthquakes cause loss of life. God bless Hopefully we will intervene in Istanbul together. ”

“WE WILL IMPROVE DISASTER AWARENESS”

“We have been thinking that we are all vigilant about the earthquake for over 20 years, but unfortunately the number of risky buildings in Istanbul bothers us. This issue is one of the areas we started as soon as we took office. I have stated that there is a mobilization issue and a national issue, that we have to sit down and talk together, that we have to carry out this process together with the highest levels of our municipality and our state without any compromise. We are at the same point today. Of course we will make this preparation. We will develop disaster awareness. We will have serious training. Our works are about to be completed in order to put into practice the application we prepared at disaster preparedness in Istanbul. We detected more than 800 new earthquake meeting areas in Istanbul in the last month. There are those who are ready, there are those who are not. We will do their preparatory work. Most of them are in the central districts of Istanbul, Fatih, Beyoğlu, Şişli, Beşiktaş, Kadıköyuntil I reach Üsküdar. ”

IZ WE HAVE RECEIVED A SERIOUS WARNING ”

“We have received a serious warning today. We are responsible for evaluating this warning nationally. As İBB, there is no doubt that we will perform our duty with great determination until the end. We are currently on alert with all our friends at AKOM. At the same time, whether we are İGDAŞ, İSKİ or other affiliates, we are ready to intervene in the process altogether. There will be meetings with my friends about developments, and earthquake-related experts. Then I will meet you and I will inform you. ”

İK WE HAVE NOT COME TO SATISFACING LEVEL IN COMBATING EARTHQUAKE ”

İmamoğlu also shared the following information in his second statement at AKOM:
Imiz Our pursuit continues. Finally, we don't have any gratifying casualties. Some of the notices about buildings are unfounded and some of our teams work on the field. İSKİ and İGDAŞ teams are also in the field. SCADA team continues to follow the field. We take precautions by cutting off gas in risky buildings. We will inform the public about the clear findings we receive. This is an important warning for us. Istanbul, 17 August After the 1999 earthquake, the determination to fight the earthquake was expressed, but unfortunately we have not reached a satisfactory level near 20 year. Earthquake is a national problem of our city and our country. Therefore, everyone should come together to produce ideas, solve the problem, take steps on this issue. Municipalities, central government, everyone needs to take responsibility. It's an area we've been long ago. We immediately said that we should sit down and talk to the table. Ece

“WE NEED EDUCATION”

“We moved the earthquake assembly areas, which we have just identified, to Istanbul very quickly. kazanWe know we have to climb. These determinations in the central points of Istanbul, the smallest of which is 500 square meters, will actually fill a great deficiency. In addition, there is a need for a complete change in mentality regarding the strengthening of structures and urban transformation. We are prepared for this as well. Again, we need an education that will enable us to be prepared at the highest level in the event of a disaster. Our preparation is clear in this regard. By cooperating with schools and all public institutions, we will demonstrate our efforts to raise awareness of the entire society. We will also share an application with Istanbulites in order to create an earthquake-ready Istanbul. This one is ready too. It is obvious that we have to think about the earthquake and find a solution without wasting time, without wasting a second.”

“IMM THAILAND UZ

“We are now at AKOM. In particular, I met with all the district mayors on the coastal part of the European side. Our determinations continue here. We are also meeting with Mr. Governor. We ensure that the process operates in the healthiest way with information flow from both AFAD and us. IMM is on alert. We will be with our fellow countrymen in meeting the needs by sending a mobile buffet in the areas where people gather. Experts are working on this. We know well that there is a study in Kandilli. We will inform the public on every issue. Our experts on earthquakes continue their work on the subject. ”

“EARTHQUAKE IS THE FATE OF ISTANBUL AND NATURE”

“Let's transmit because there is a lot of information about the Bosphorus Bridge. Interviews were made with those responsible for highways. There was a pier there. The image of that pier makes it look as if there is a problem there. No problem. The pier is also being lifted. If there is a problem, we will inform our citizens here. Get well soon. As I said, we will take the most basic steps to solve the earthquake issue in Istanbul. The big earthquake is the fate of Istanbul and nature. I hope that we will solve the problems of Istanbul without experiencing it. Get well soon. ”
