Just how shaky is the ground you live on? When was the last earthquake in Turkey?

Did you know that in any week over 100 earthquakes are recorded in, around and under Turkey.

Whilst many are not major ground shakers it does illustrate that Turkey is situated on constantly moving ground.

The Turkish Catastrophe Insurance Pool or DASK are keen that property owners are aware of the risks of earthquakes and offer a handy on-line interactive map to show not only the earthquake risk category of the areas of Turkey but also the last few earthquakes to be recorded.

Fethiye and surrounding villages, are all in the highest risk of earthquake – category 1

The interactive map can be found here.
