Abstract

Earthquake is a natural disaster that harms people and affects their lives deeply, causing social and economic losses. In this respect, earthquakes lead to the emergence of historical facts in terms of their consequences. As far as we can see from the Ottoman archive documents, except the damage to the buildings due to earthquakes; There were deaths in the households in the center and in the villages. As the state provides financial aid (atiyye-yi seniyye) to help the citizens as much as possible; He also sent tents and food to the homeless. In earthquakes, we see that both the inner castle and the surrounding villages, important places such as mosques, mosques, churches, telegraph houses, and public buildings and government buildings were destroyed. A physician was sent from the Capital for the treatment of the injured and the prevention of diseases in earthquakes. We also see that taxes are postponed due to the earthquake. The Ottoman Empire tried to provide all kinds of support to the people of Islam, Christianity and Jews without discrimination. Although there are many earthquakes on the island reflected in the records; We tried to write the situation reflected in the archive documents of the three major earthquakes in the years 1867-1889-1899, the first two of which caused severe destruction. The most important issue unfortunately recurring in the archive documents is economy
