Starting on 6 February 2023, the earthquake storm resumed in southern and central Turkey, as well as northern and western Syria. The first and main earthquake had a magnitude 7.8. Death toll estimated to be more than 50K and injuries could reach more than 120K cases. 2.5 M people displaced and 10 f0lds of this number of people has been affected.
The epicenter of the main earthquake was 26 kilometers east of the city of Nurdaği in Turkey’s Gaziantep province, at a depth of 17.9 kilometers.
Most of Turkey sits on the Anatolian plate between two major faults: the North Anatolian Fault and the East Anatolian Fault. The tectonic plate that carries Arabia, including Syria, is moving northwards and colliding with the southern rim of Eurasia, which is squeezing Turkey out towards the west, says David Rothery, a geoscientist at the Open University in Milton Keynes, UK.

The fault is a sinistral (left lateral) strike slip one that runs NE-SW for 300 Km. The horizontal displacement along the fault line is toughly 6 m.
Uniformitarian geology laws do not seem to work with this kind of catastrophes. Biblical timeframe geology model works better.
