Earthquake loss models predict that tragedies of comparable scope are possible here in the United States. Building collapse hazard: More than 20,000 reinforced concrete buildings with little or no ductility are estimated to have collapsed in the Kocaeli earthquake. Much of the building stock in the United States was constructed before the importance of ductility, the ability to deform without catastrophic loss of strength, was fully appreciated. 8 Introduction 3 The Kocaeli, Turkey, earthquake struck near the city of Izmit on August 17, According to official government estimates (as of October 19, 1999), it killed 17,127, and injured more than 43,953 people.

The 1999 İzmit earthquake (also known as the Kocaeli, Gölcük, or Marmara earthquake) occurred on 17 August at 03:01:40 local time in northwestern Turkey. The shock had a moment magnitude of . and a maximum Mercalli intensity of IX (Violent). The event lasted for 37 seconds, killing around 17,000 people and left more than 250,000 people homeless. The nearby city of İzmit was severely damaged.
