Is the earthquake in Bor a leading earthquake?
Participating in the live broadcast of NTV after the earthquake, Geologist Prof. Dr. Okan Tüysüz says:
The Bor area had been shaken before. It is one of the earthquakes that have been in Niğde for many years. I think it's the same area… This is the southern end of the fault system, which we call the Tuz Gölü fault system, which is over 200 km long.
After two major earthquakes, there is a change in the balance of all faults in Turkey. I think it is an earthquake activity that develops in this context. I don't think this will be a precursor to an earthquake to worry about."
