Shallow M6 Turkey Earthquake

Just in on the ticker.  It couldn't happen in a more lonely place.  Still they estimate that 65000 people may have been exposed to Intensity 6, which is about 30 cm/s and will certainly roll those stone houses.

Followup. Not too much damage, some shoddy buildings down. I put it now at 10 cm/s, which is enough for a nuclear meltdown. :) Most likely, there is stiff ground, not like Christchurch.
