Earthquakes with a magnitude of 7.6 and 7.8, the epicenter of which is Kahramanmaras, are shown as the deadliest earthquakes in Turkey’s recent history.

Most of the coastal towns and villages swept away by the tsunami were rebuilt at a cost of $280 billion, and tens of thousands of people were never able to return home.
