This paper discusses the ability of Turkish authorities to cope with natural disasters that occur in the region. It looks at how they reacted to the 1999 Marmara sea region earthquake and the 2000 flooding and discusses how these events challenged the power of the Turkish state to properly ensure the security of its population. The paper then looks at the areas Turkey must improve in order to prevent such massive loss of lives and damages from occurring again.
