Top 10 Most Dangerous Places On The Earth
6. Istanbul, Turkey
A disaster waiting to happen, 12 million residents in Istanbul living atop the North Anatolian Fault, also known as earthquake central.
A 2000 study found the city faces a greater than 60% chance of experiencing a magnitude 7.0 earthquake by 2030. A magnitude 7.6 earthquake in the Kocaeli province of Turkey, 75 miles away from Istanbul, killed nearly 1,000 people in Istanbul alone. A similar earthquake in the city center would kill many more.
