Duzce, Turkey Earthquake, November 12, 1999
The minarets on a mosque near the center of Duzce collapsed. The mosque was constructed in 1976 from reinforced concrete and faced with cut stone blocks. Its minarets collapsed without significantly damaging the central mosque structure, as the arches were braced by steel tie beams. Note that the minaret is partially buried from the force of impact.
The magnitude 7.2 quake occurred at 6.57 pm local time (16:57 GMT). Duzce lies on the eastern fringe of the region hit by the August 17 quake. Some areas experienced a one-two punch from the 1999 earthquakes. The death toll from the November quake was reported to be 260 people. More than 1,282 were injured and at least 102 buildings were destroyed.
