Why The 2023 Türkiye–Syria Earthquakes Are Leaving Scores of People Homeless
“Why are the 2023 Türkiye–Syria Earthquakes Leaving Scores of People Homeless?”
The 2023 Türkiye–Syria Earthquakes have demolished much of the built environments in both countries. Many people are now forced to find shelter because their homes have been shaken to the ground. This has been a feature of past earthquakes in Türkiye. In 1999, the Izmit Earthquake left over a quarter-million people homeless. This is Why The 2023 Türkiye–Syria Earthquakes Are Leaving Scores of People Homeless.
As of writing, victims of the 2023 Türkiye – Syria earthquake are continuing to face great difficulties in their daily life.
