Turkey is a very quake prone country. Turkey has been exposed to many earthquakes in the past and met many casualties. The area of eastern turkey where Sunday’s earthquake struck is one of the most seismically active areas of this world.
This video is very informative. Johanna Wagstaffe, seismologist explains that turkey is located on the Anatolian plate which is constantly bumping and grinding with the Arabian plate to the South, What happened on Sunday was that two plates slide beside each other which is called Transform Fault and a quake of 7.2 was produced. The video also provided maps as well as graph which gave excellent support for viewers to easily understand the situation.
The video also gave historical background. Johanna gives a lot of historical details about earthquakes and also explained with depth that 15 earthquakes of this magnitude occur every year and in unpopulated areas. She also tells that its aftershocks are extremely strong will continue for months. People are in trouble. That highlights the seriousness of the situation and creates awareness about it. Through the video, viewers will know about the happening and will want to help. Overall, I feel this video was shot very professional and serves the purpose to create awareness and provide viewers with information.
