A powerful shallow quake rocks Turkey: This afternoon a magnitude 6.7 - 4km ENE of Doganyol, Turkey according to USGS.
This quake could be significant, no fewer than four major tectonic plates (Arabia, Eurasia, India, and Africa) and one smaller tectonic block (Anatolia) are responsible for seismicity and tectonics in the Middle East and the surrounding region. Geologic development of the region is a consequence of a number of first-order plate tectonic processes that include subduction, large-scale transform faulting, compressional mountain building and crustal extension.
Today's quake is the 10th of January and 2020 and is the 10th major quake of the new decade and the 3,094th of this century! I guess they are not gonna stop.
