A 6.0-magnitude earthquake hit Turkey on June 10, marking the third in less than a year to strike the country.

While there were no serious injuries or damage, several people jumped from windows or balconies in sheer panic when the earth began to shake.

In the past 13 years alone, continual shifting of tectonic plates below the nation has caused numerous earthquakes, including a 7.2-magnitude temblor that killed more than 600 people in 2011.

“Turkey is actually on its own plate, called the Anatolian plate, and so it’s bumping and grinding with plates to the north, the Eurasian plate, [and] it’s sliding and bumping with the Arabian plate to the south,” a CBC News seismologist explained.

Over the past 13 years, earthquakes have caused more than 20,000 deaths in Turkey.
