Istanbul’s biggest threat doesn’t come from terrorists

8 Jan 2017, Washington Post

Many experts have warned that Istanbul has at least a 50 percent chance of suffering a massive earthquake in the next two decades. The Turkish government has previously announced several campaigns to address the seismic risk Istanbul faces but experts warn the plans are inadequate. A major earthquake would still take a devastating toll on Turkey as a whole.
