I just got off the phone with freinds in Kaya Koyu ( outside of Fethiye ) and it was quite the tremor..
I send my best wishes to all the Fethiye and surrounding residents
we are thinking of you
Was lying out by the pool and could not believe the way the earth just shook. Never seen my husband move so fast running from the house to the garden. There was a second smaller quake about 10 minutes later.
Yip the ground moved for us as well - We had 2 Turkish police friends visiting and they ran for it - but went round all the neighbours checking they were OK
İts the first one I have ever felt although have been here when others have hit - but slept through them, our Turkish friends said that was the worst they had ever felt - so if thats the case not too worried now.
I hope there are no after shocks and everyone is OK .
It was quiet strong just spoke to some people and said it rocked them quite A bit , had an aftershock a little later , think some people just shocked but ok , it has been extremely warm , i flew home early hours this morning and there were a few thunderstorms on the journey , no damage been done but most electrics are out in calis and fethiye !
Hope all's well and everyone is safe!
All ok it seems, very frightening was very strong movement. Local tv reporting no injuries but some building damage can be seen. our hotel just had power restored and we are central.
Strange as nothing seen on local tv about babadag but we have a picture on our camera. which shows it to have a flat section on the summit which I don't think was like that before and the photo has what looked like smoke coming off the very top, we asked a local whether it was a volcano it looked so strange he said no and not to worry as it was probably cloud (didn't look like cloud for sure) but the locals were pointing to it and discussing. Can only assume the "smoke" to maybe be dust from rocks falling.
