Turkey is located in a seismically active zone and earthquakes, which often lead to the loss of human life, occur here very frequently. The strongest fluctuations in the Earth's crust in this country were recorded in 1999 in the Marmara Sea. The magnitude of tremors then was 7.4; about 18,000 people died.
