2023-02-20, M6.4, Turkey

On the 20th of February 2023 at 17:04:29 (UTC) an M6.4 earthquake occurred in Southern Turkey near the border with Syria, about 15km southwest of Antakya and 5km from the Mediterranean Sea, see map below. The event struck in an area already affected by two strong earthquakes that hit two weeks earlier and caused more than 45,000 deaths and widespread destruction of infrastructure. The M6.4 event occurred at a relatively shallow depth of 10 to 15km and was felt as far as Egypt and Lebanon. Local sources report that several people have been killed and hundreds are injured due to collapsed buildings.

The event was recorded by seismic stations worldwide, including stations in theĀ Irish National Seismic Network (INSN), see figure below.
