It's worth reminding that the tragic events occurred on February 6 - several earthquakes occurred in Syria and Turkey. Turkish authorities report more than 45 thousand victims. A Dutch scientist who predicted a powerful earthquake in Turkey on February 6 (more than 45 thousand people became victims), spoke about the danger of a "mega-earthquake" that could occur on March 3-4 and/or March 6-7.
