Final reconnaissance report to be provided to all attendees upon publication. Doors open 30 minutes before Briefings On Tuesday, August 17 at 3:02 a.m. local time, a 7.4 ML earthquake struck the western, industrial heartland of Turkey. The epicenter was located 11 km southeast of the western port city of Izmit, which is located 90 km east of Istanbul and 270 km northwest of Ankara. The earthquake occurred along the northernmost strand of the North Anatolian fault systems, one of the most active plate boundaries in the world. To date, this earthquake has caused more than 14,000 deaths, thousands of injuries, and has left over 500,000 homeless. The earthquake caused a major fire at the Tupras oil refinery in Izmit, flooding in the city of Golcuk due to subsidence, and thousands of collapsed buildings. The EERI team, lead by T. Leslie Youd, traveled to Turkey within 48 hours of the earthquake, where they met with members of the local science and engineering communities and gained access to the heavily damaged areas. Their observations will highlight on the nature and extent of damage and will cover the following topics: * Structures * Geologic and geotechnical considerations * Industrial Facilities * Highway and bridge damage * Public policy and societal impacts EERI Reconnaissance Team Members T.
