Humanity faces the fate of Atlantis

ASTANA. March 18. KAZINFORM — Scientists say that the Earth has entered an active phase of the seismic cycle. The number of earthquakes will increase each year, and the water element, vibrations disturbed the Earth's surface could endanger the welfare of the human civilization, according Utro.ru.

Commenting sharply increased incidence of earthquakes, experts say that the planet was included in the "amazing" phase of the seismic cycle. At its expense, and include loss of life and extensive damage has already buckled under the economies of several countries.

Recall that last year our planet stir up a series of powerful

Disasters are on the schedule. In the near future in Japan threatens new massive earthquake

What actually caused the earthquake in Japan? Why in the near future we can expect a new push nearly as destructive? What threatens Russia Japanese seismic cataclysms? This correspondent "RG" talks with the Chairman of the Scientific Council on Seismology Sciences, corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Gennady Sobolev.

WG: The cause of the earthquake in Japan, there were quite a contradictory message, but still the main call creeping at each other tectonic plates. Do you agree?

Gennady Sobolev: Not really. Here it is necessary to clarify that in this area there are three plates:

The most terrible earthquake is yet to come

We live on the planet Earth is only with the permission of its geology, and at any time, this authorization may be revoked, warns in Newsweek columnist Simon Winchester.

For hundreds or thousands of Japanese Land withdrew its resolution on Friday — all at once, suddenly, he recalls. Under his feet shook the earth, the Pacific Ocean to the land rush.

The recent earthquake in Japan can not be regarded as an isolated phenomenon, the author continues. February 22 in the Pacific, New Zealand was another devastating earthquake, and almost a year ago — an earthquake measuring 8.8 points

Weather Service called the Japanese earthquake the strongest in the history of the country

What happened in the north-east Japan earthquake was the strongest in the history of the country, the mmo country. Its magnitude was estimated as 8.8.

The number of victims of the earthquake in Japan reached five people and continues to grow, the exact number of wounded and injured is not yet known, according to Reuters. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the magnitude of the earthquake was 8.9. Its epicenter was located 373 kilometers northeast of Tokyo, the center lies at a depth of 24 kilometers. A series of strong aftershocks in northeast Japan and the subsequent tsunami caused

Japanese island of Honshu has shifted to 2.4 meters

The disastrous earthquake in Japan, the country's largest island of Honshu has shifted to 2.4 meters. This is according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

On Honshu, near the north-east coast which was the epicenter of the tremors earth's crust, are all major cities, including Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya, Kobe, Kyoto, and many others, including those most affected by this earthquake Sendai.

On Friday, the Italian specialists of the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology Centre of Geodesy and the Italian Space Agency suggested that the earthquake in Japan has led to a shift in the Earth's axis, at least

Seismologist Kenneth Krieger — the threat of earthquakes and tsunamis in the U.S.

The world continues to discuss the consequences of the earthquake in Japan and the tsunami that swept across the Pacific Ocean. According to scientists, seismologists, the probability of large earthquakes on the Pacific coast of the U.S. from Alaska to California is very high.

Areas of the U.S. Pacific from Hawaii to California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska are in a zone of high seismic activity. There are periodic earthquakes, tsunamis and other natural disasters. For example, in Alaska in 1964, the strongest earthquake triggered a tsunami, which reached to the coast of northern California. Then killed 130 people. According to

Scientists said the possible natural disasters in New York

Seismologists warn strong oscillations of the earth's crust can occur here at any moment, and many buildings in Manhattan will be destroyed, damages could run into billions of dollars

In addition to Tokyo in the area of seismic activity are 7 more cities in the world. Now scientists warn of natural disasters in New York. Geologists closely examine crustal fault in Lower Manhattan, but to predict exactly when it happens, can not yet. Report Nina Vishneva.

Crimea: how to bang?

In September last year, Ukraine has bypassed the alarm message: seismologists warned of the high probability of a major earthquake in the 7-9, with the most affected areas may become Odessa region and the Crimea. According to the Institute of Geophysics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NASU), the script can resemble an earthquake in 1977, with its epicenter in Vrancea zone in Romania. Then the wave came to Kiev to 5 points, and quite tangible jolt experienced even Muscovites. Of course, no seismic research institute does not predict the exact date of a possible earthquake. To answer

Early warning of earthquakes: the predictive power of the radiation

French satellite from orbit recorded a sharp increase in low-frequency radio signals in the area of Haiti is in a whole month before the devastating earthquake of magnitude 7.

The devastating earthquake in Haiti has been one of the biggest disasters of the year — even against the fires in Russia, the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico and the eruption of the Icelandic volcano with the unpronounceable name. Some geological aspects of the earthquake, we wrote in the article "The disaster on the island." But above all this, in a polar orbit at an altitude of about 700

More than 3 million people have been affected by an earthquake in Guatemala

The number of victims of the recent earthquake in Guatemala has exceeded 3.4 million people, reported the National Service to reduce the impact of natural disasters.

Previously, the number of people left without electricity, water and communications, estimated at about 1.2 million.

According to the latest data, the powerful 7.2-magnitude earthquake that occurred on November 7 in Guatemala killed 44 people, the country's economy suffered serious damage. As reported by Latin American media, the earthquake caused damage to 11 of the 22 departments of the country. Documented that approximately 30,500 people have been evacuated, almost 10,000 of them are still
