Initial field reports of surface rupture range from about 10 km to 30 km. This image shows the surface fault rupture of the Turkey earthquake event. The light blue heavier line is the most distinct break and may have the largest surface fault rupture. The thinner green lines are less distinct and may need further investigation in the field.
