Abstract. On February 6, 2017 a swarm of earthquakes began at the western end of the Turkey. This has been the first recorded swarm at Çanakkale region since continuous seismic monitoring began in 1970. The number of located earthquakes increased during the next ten days. This paper describes the output of a survey carried out in the earthquake prone towns of Ayvacık, Çanakkale, Turkey, in February 2017 after the earthquakes. Observations collected on site regard traditional buildings at the rural area of Ayvacık. A description of the main structural features and their effects on the most frequently viewed damage modes are related in plane, out of plane behavior of the wall regarding construction practice, connection type etc. It was found that there were no convenient connection details like cavity-ties or sufficient mortar strength resulting in decreased and/or lack of lateral load bearing capacity of the wall.
