After the 6.4-magnitude earthquake in Defne, a 5.8-magnitude earthquake occurred in Samandag. Many cities felt the strength of the earthquakes, which occurred at 3-minute intervals.

Where Professor Sengur Sengur repeated his warnings of the possibility of an earthquake in Istanbul, and said: “The intensity will rise to 9 in Yeshilkoy and Tuzla. It won’t be the size, but you will feel the sharpness. We expect the severity to not be less than 7 degrees.”
