One year ago, two catastrophic earthquakes, the M7.8 Kahramanmaraş event and the M7.5 Ekinözu event, shook Turkey and left an indelible mark on our collective memory. These two mainshocks, occurring within a span of 9 hours and less than 100km apart, resulted in over 50,000 fatalities and destroyed or heavily damaged over 200,000 houses. With insured losses exceeding $5 billion, the Kahramanmaraş Earthquake Sequence is one of the most significant seismic events in Turkey’s recorded history. This webinar aims to provide a review of the events, the lessons learned, and our plans for updating our Europe Earthquake Model.
In this webinar, we’ll share:
- An overview of the Kahramanmaraş Earthquake Sequence.
- Lessons learned from a risk modeling perspective.
- How this event has informed future updates to our Europe Earthquake Model.
