As a result of that work, we made a general map of Sivrice. We cannot allow building in any way in the area where the fault line passes. We cannot keep the home of our 40-50 citizens, who are on the active fault, new or intact here. Why can't we hold it because it has an active fault line underneath. In other words, even if it was not destroyed in this earthquake, it is very likely to be destroyed in the next earthquake. ”
