Moderate Aftershock Shakes Turkey

February 14, 2000

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) _ A moderate quake today shook the northwestern province of Bolu, causing fear among tens of thousands of people living in tents and prefabricated dwellings after a deadly quake destroyed their homes in November.

There were no reports of damage or injury.

The quake had a preliminary magnitude of 5, the Istanbul-based Kandilli observatory said. It was followed by a magnitude-3.8 aftershock.

Some 800 people were killed around Bolu by the Nov. 12 quake, which followed a deadlier quake further west that killed more than 17,000 people in August.
