1999 EARTHQUAKE DEMOLISHED KOCAELI-GOLCUK AND ITS SURROUNDING AS HAPPENED DURING CENTURIES.

AS WE ALL KNOW THE EXISTENCE OF EARTHQUAKE, BUILDINGS WHICH ARE CONSTRUCTED UNSTABLE, IGNORANT AND UNCONSCIOUS COULD NOT PROTECT THEIR EXISTENCE OVER THAT KIND OF POWER. THAT BUILDINGS DEMOLISHED WITH ALL VALUES.
