In the Caucasus, increasing seismic activity

In the east of the Caucasus, in Dagestan, growth of seismic activity that can be completed by an earthquake. This was announced on Thursday by the Deputy Director of the Institute of Physics of the Earth RAS Schmidt named Yevgeny Rogozhin.

According to him, the Caucasian region in our country should cause the greatest concern.

"Most of the Kuriles and Kamchatka — not a very populated area, and there is a seismic risk is not very high. Even the big earthquake there are often associated with great sacrifice, "- said Rogozhin.

"Caucasus — this is a different situation. This is
