A massive earthquake of 7.0 magnitude has struck in the Aegean Sea near Izmir, Turkey, Multiple buildings have also collapsed. The earthquake is also affecting Greece.
Is it an earthquake or a conspiracy against Turkey? Because as we all know what’s going on in the world has chances to make an artificial earthquake but how?
Basically Induced seismicity refers to typically minor earthquakes and tremors that are caused by human activity that alters the stresses and strains on the Earth's crust. Most induced seismicity is of a low magnitude. While many human-induced earthquakes are mild and don't cause much damage, some of them can be serious and dangerous. Scientists believe human activity has caused earthquakes with magnitudes as high as 7.9 on the Richter scale.
Scientists believe most human-induced earthquakes are the result of mining. As companies drill deeper and deeper below the Earth's surface to extract natural resources, holes left behind can cause instability that leads to collapses that trigger earthquakes.
A powerful 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit Greece and Turkey, causing buildings to collapse and a sea surge that flooded streets in the Turkish resort city of Izmir. At least four people have been killed and several injured.
