Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Tunç Soyer made examinations in Seferihisar, the epicenter of the 6,9 magnitude earthquake that hit Izmir. Mayor Soyer was accompanied by his wife, Neptün Soyer, as well as Seferihisar Mayor İsmail Adult and municipal officials. Mayor Soyer, who examined the houses, workplaces and marina in the Kaleiçi region of Sığacık, which was damaged by the overflow of sea water after the earthquake, gave the message "We are with you" to the citizens.
Making a statement after his examinations, President Soyer said, “Previously, there were big earthquakes in Seferihisar. People remained in the streets. We tried to heal the wounds of earthquakes outside for weeks. We learned a lot from all this. After that day, we worked together to organize the building stock, new licenses and new constructions in Seferihisar. Fortunately, although the center of this great earthquake was Seferihisar, there were no major casualties and destructions. We find solace with this. Therefore, in a way we are happy, ”he said.
"We will heal the wounds hand in hand"
Reminding that the tsunami took place behind the earthquake, İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Tunç Soyer said, “We only saw the so-called tsunami in movies. Turns out he had a future for us. Therefore, we are very sorry. Our citizens have experienced great victimization. Our shameless citizens, the people who earn their bread with their hand labor and their sweat, have suffered a great deal. Therefore, we are very sorry. But we will heal the wounds together. We are happy that nothing has happened to our citizens' lives. All of these have compensation. As İzmir Metropolitan Municipality, we are with Seferihisar Municipality until the end. We will be with our citizens until the end. "We will heal the wounds altogether." Mayor Soyer also met with Antalya Metropolitan Deputy Mayor Mehmet Hacıarifıoğlu, who came to Izmir for support.
