Experts see the connection between earthquakes in Greece and Japan

Powerful tremors last week in Japan could be one of the causes of earthquakes in Greece, said on Friday the head of the Athens Institute of Geodynamics, Professor Konstantinos Makropoulos. "Such a huge earthquake in Japan, accelerate the appearance of faults, which are already ready to emerge. This is like a glass full to the brim, which is ready to spill," — said seismologist, quoted by the Athens News Agency.

Scientists: Seismic activity in Siberia in the next few years will increase

Increase in seismic activity is expected in the next two years in Siberia and Yakutia, but high magnitude earthquakes are expected, according to RIA Novosti on Thursday, Director of the Geophysical Service of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences Viktor Seleznev.

"Indeed, in the last two years in Siberia observed seismic calm. Seismic energy at this time is allocated a little, and since on the average, this value is quite constant, in the next year or two, we should expect increased activity and, therefore, the frequency of earthquakes should increase, "- said the scientist.

"The first earthquake,
