Earthquakes can become the norm in Central Russia

May 24, 2013. In the Okhotsk Sea was a new earthquake (magnitude 6.8) off the coast of Kamchatka possible threat of a tsunami. This is the second blow for May 24, the first wave reaching as far as Moscow and St. Petersburg. In many cities where earthquakes never know, people fled their homes in panic and offices.

Chandeliers in Krasnoyarsk skyscrapers shook before dark, about ten in the morning in Moscow. After some seconds a similar pattern has repeated itself in Novosibirsk. Siberians and could not imagine that they feel the echoes of the earthquake that occurred a few thousand kilometers.

Hearth — 120 kilometers from the coast and at a depth of more than 600 kilometers below the bottom of the Sea of Okhotsk. Underground wave swept across Russia in a matter of seconds, tremors were felt in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

The consequences of the Far East and the earthquake appeared on the Volga. In one of the buildings in the center of Samara formed just two cracks, cordoned off the building, its specialists examined. On the vibrations of the soil reported Khabarovsk, Yakutsk, Tomsk, Kemerovo, Novosibirsk, Ufa, Naberezhnye Chelny, Nizhniy Novgorod and other cities of the country.

In the immediate vicinity of the hearth, on the coast of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands, at first even announced tsunami threat. However, an hour later the alarm mode removed. This, experts say, by the power of rare depth of the earthquake occurred just in the area of contact of three tectonic plates. Hearth, according to experts, was in the place where the Pacific shifted under the North American and European plates. Such earthquakes are felt, in fact, the entire surface of the Earth.

Plate movement still continues, and it means that for such a shaking of Central Russia, sooner or later, may become commonplace. If the Far East, the tremors — a usual thing, then the capital of the region until the event of a series of Exotic. Previously recorded earthquake in Moscow only in 1940, 1944 and 1977, respectively.
