    It was released worldwide by Netflix on July 9, 2020. A film compilation version of the series was subsequently released in Japanese theaters on November 13, 2020. Summary. Shortly after the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, a major earthquake hits Japan.

  4. The earthquake moved Honshu (the main island of Japan) 2.4 m (8 ft) east, shifted the Earth on its axis by estimates of between 10 cm (4 in) and 25 cm (10 in), increased earth's rotational speed by 1.8 µs per day, and generated infrasound waves detected in perturbations of the low-orbiting Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer satellite.

    Japan has a population of 125.7 million, of which 123.2 million are Japanese nationals (2020 estimates). A small population of foreign residents makes up the remainder. [212] In 2019, 92% of the total Japanese population lived in cities. [213]

    The Aegean Sea is a seismically active region with complex plate tectonics interaction both within and surrounding the Aegean Sea Plate. The region has several major plate boundary including the North Anatolian Fault which runs through northern Turkey, where the Anatolian Plate slides past the Eurasian Plate along this right-lateral strike-slip fault. Another major boundary is the East Anatolian Fault where the Arabian Plate interacts with the Anatolian Plate. This transform fault was responsible for the 2020 Elazığ earthquake. At its southern edges, the African Plate converges north towards the Aegean Sea Plate at a rate of 5–10 mm/yr. It subducts or dives beneath the Aegean, occasionally producing great megathrust earthquakes and tsunamis including the 365 Crete earthquake. The subduction rate along the Hellenic subduction zone at 35 mm/yr, however, greatly exceeds the velocity of the African Plate. North-south extension within the Aegean Sea Plate in the back-arc region compensat...

    The earthquake occurred as a result of pure normal faulting at a shallow crustal depth within the Aegean Sea Plate in the eastern Aegean Sea, about 250 km north of the closest main plate boundary. The Hellenic Trench is where the African Plate moves north at a rate of approximately 10 mm per year with respect to the Eurasian Plate. Therefore, this earthquake is considered an intraplate earthquakedue to its location. The North Samos Fault, also known as the Kaystrios Fault, is an east–west striking, north–northeast dipping normal fault located offshore, north of the coast of Samos. A 2009 study determined that the fault had the potential to produce an earthquake of magnitude 6.8. It likely ruptured entirely during the earthquake for a length of approximately 60 km. The epicenter location suggest it was on the western extension of the Kuşadası Fault, part of the geologically active Büyük Menderes Graben. The earthquake released a seismic moment of 3.3 × 1019 Nm, corresponding to a mom...

    Tsunami information was issued by the Kandilli ObservatoryEarthquake Monitoring and Tsunami Warning Center to the Earthquake Research Department of Turkey 11 minutes after the earthquake but was not broadcast to the coastal regions. The tsunami arrived between 10 and 15 minutes after the mainshock. Multiple social media posts showed water rushing through streets and ports in the region following the earthquake, along with tsunami warnings being issued for the islands of Ikaria, Kos, Chios and Samos. Flooding from the coasts reached heights of 1.9 meters (6 feet), however at Akarca, the tsunami reached heights of 6 metres (19 feet). In Azmak, the tsunami penetrated 1.3 kilometres (0.8 miles) inland, 0.82 kilometres (0.5 miles) in Akarca, and 0.32 kilometres (0.2 miles) in Sigacik. Recorded heights of the tsunami from this event were larger that of other similar magnitude quakes in the same region with the exception of the 1956 Amorgos earthquake. Moderate damage to the Turkish and Gr...

    The earthquake produced significant coseismic uplift on the island of Samos. Surface ruptures were also observed on the island. Uplift along the beaches, ports, and coasts were recorded at Samos. At Karlovasi, up to 24 cm of permanent uplift was measured at a breakwater off the coast. Approximately 1.5 km west of Karlovasi is the Akra roaky coast consisting of marble, which was uplifted 20 cm. Between 15 and 20 cm of uplift was measured at Ayios Nikolaos, located 12 km southwest of the earthquake epicenter. An aftershock measuring Mw 4.5 on January 23, 2021 generated 8 to 10 cm of additional uplift in the same area. Same measurements were recorded at a marina in Marathokampos, and an aftershock on January 20 caused further uplift of the coast. The Pythagoreio Fault in Pythagoreio, 29 km southeast of the earthquake, generated 20 cm of surface deformation during the quake. An estimated uplift of 25 cm is thought to have occurred at Potokaki as reported by tourists. According to the Ea...

    Overall, minor damage occurred on Samos despite its proximity to the epicenter. Most of the damage and casualties were from the Bornova and Bayraklı districts of İzmir; located at least 70 km north of the epicenter. On 4 November, mayor of İzmir Tunç Soyer stated that 15,000 people lost their homes only in İzmir in the earthquake. Total damage is estimated to be in the millions for Greece, and over $400 million for Turkey. Serious structural damage and pancake-style collapsesresulted in many deaths.

    Right after the earthquake, Turkish Minister of Health Fahrettin Koca stated that about 40 ambulances, 35 emergency rescue teams and two ambulance helicopters had reached the scene, while Turkey's Ministry of National Defence stated that one of its planes had departed from Etimesgut Air Base to transport AFAD and gendarmerie teams to the region. The Turkish Red Crescent immediately deployed teams from six cities to provide food to those affected by the earthquake. More than 1,200 workers were involved in rescue efforts involving at least 13 buildings in İzmir, which continued into the night. According to Al Jazeera, the personnel involved in the rescue operations had reached about 8,000, including 25 rescue dogs. Turkish authorities stated that 106 people were rescued, while the local government had set up tents to house about 2,000 people overnight. A three-year-old Ayda Gezgin was also said to have been the second little girl rescued on Tuesday, from an 8-story building.A total of...

    Following the deadly 1999 İzmit earthquakewhich claimed 17,000 lives, Turkey has stepped-up its measures on building codes in respond to earthquakes. Codes have enabled increase the safety of newer buildings during seismic events. Among the residential apartments which suffered structural damage was the Yılmaz Erbek Apartment located in the Bayraklı metropolitan district. The 10-storey apartment partially collapsed, destroying the first few floors, killing 11 residents and injuring another 11. An investigation by the İzmir Chief Public Prosecutor's Office found that poor construction materials and practices, and the lack of inspections led to its collapse. During renovation works in the 2000s, the ground floor was renovated for a supermarket. Seven of the nine workspaces in the first floor were combined, which meant cloumns were deliberately cut to make space for the supermarket. An exterior wall of the structure was also torn down for a window. A total of five indictmentswere filed...

    On the first year anniversary of the event in 2021, the Çiğli municipality opened a public earthquake memorial to commemorate the event. A memorial service was held at the Hacılarkır Cemetery in the Karşıyakawhere most of the victima were laid to rest. Monuments were also erected near the Rıza Bey Apartment which collapsed.
