Earthquake in a densely populated area, which leads to numerous deaths and significant damage, can be of the same power as disasters in remote areas that mostly scare wild nature. People often don’t even notice big earthquakes, which take place under the oceans. The north-west of Turkey, a very densely populated part of the country and an important industrial center, was damaged by two massive earthquakes in 1999. On the day of the catastrophe, the local government declared a state of emergency and asked for international help. Low amplitude shocks are not rare in this part of the country.
