1970: A 7.2-magnitude earthquake strikes western Turkey, killing 1,086 and injured another 1,260. The town of Gediz, home to repeated natural disasters like earthquakes and floods, was relocated following a government resolution soon after the 1970 destruction to a new place about four miles away under the name Yeni Gediz, which translates to New Gediz.
