Date and Time: 9 am PDT, Wednesday, June 21 [noon NYC, 5pm London, 6 pm Zurich, 7 pm Istanbul]

Abstract: The earthquakes took the lives of 53,000 people, left 2 million homeless, and will cost an estimated $34 billion to recover from the damage. Among the many tragic and alarming elements of the Türkiye earthquakes are some that could befall California. These include the possibility of great events on secondary faults, interacting mainshocks that attack buildings twice, and the likelihood of extreme shaking near the rupture and in deep basins.
