The Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) said that the magnitude 5.9 earthquake’s epicenter was located in Düzce’s Gölyaka district and struck at 4:08 am, while the magnitude was later revised to 6.1 by the Istanbul-based Boğaziçi University Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute.
