Another disaster in Missouri earthquake

On Tuesday, Missouri experienced a small earthquake, which resulted in no injuries. This is perhaps the smallest of the chain of disasters that have befallen this state recently: tornadoes, floods, high temperatures and even the invasion of cicadas.

The epicenter of the earthquake was about 50 miles from St. Louis. Seismologists registered a magnitude of 4.2 points boost. The U.S. Geological Survey in Golden, Colorado, said the closest town to the epicenter — Richmond, six miles.

Missouri is located in a seismic zone of New Madrid, where in December 1811 and January 1812 period were recorded earthquakes

In Yakutia earthquake

In the evening on June 6 in Yakutia recorded earthquake of magnitude 4.3 on the Richter scale. Destruction and victims.

The epicenter was at a depth of 15 kilometers, and the nearest town is 37 kilometers southwest of the epicenter of the earthquake.

Scientists have for years said that the seismically active areas of Siberia will shake disasters. Currently considered the most earthquake-prone regions in the Kemerovo region of Siberia, RIA "Novosti".

Seismologists have paid little attention to continental risk zones

U.S. Geological Survey data on earthquakes on Friday.

Evaluation of seismic risk is strongly biased towards earthquakes that occur at the boundaries of the "sea" of plates (which is a blow to the north-east Japan on March 11), while the shocks occurring in the inland, little attention is paid to the unforgivable, consider Philip England of Oxford and James Jackson of the University of Cambridge (UK).

Scientists pay attention to the fact that the Sendai earthquake of magnitude 9.0 has resulted in a surprisingly small number of casualties: killed 25 thousand people — just 0.4% of those who
