Vicki Melis, has Istanbul ever been hit by an earthquake?
Melis Yes, many times. In 1999 part of Istanbul was damaged by an earthquake. More
than 7,000 people were killed and many
more were injured. The roof of our
home was damaged, so we lived with
my grandparents until it was repaired.
That's terrible. Can scientists predict earthquakes?
No, they can't. No major earthquake has ever been predicted. But in the future, if buildings are built well, people's lives can be saved in earthquakes. It's important to be prepared and have a plan in case of an earthquake.
